Mañjuśrī (Chinese: 文殊) is a bodhisattva associated with prajñā (wisdom) in Mahāyāna Buddhism. His name means "Gentle Glory" in Sanskrit. Mañjuśrī is one of the four major bodhisattvas, also considered to be the wisest bodhisattvas in Buddhism. One of the most iconic descriptions of Mañjuśrī is a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts through ignorance and duality. In this particular Thangka, Mañjuśrī is appearing more peaceful, but the viewers can still see the sword on the left side of the bodhisattva.
