Manjushri himself is the symbolic representation of prajna. He was once the teacher of seven Buddhas, the master of seven Buddhas. Since his background is not just as a Bodhisattva, he may have one hair knot, two hair knots, three hair knots, four hair knots, and five hair knots which represent his completely perfect and supreme wisdom. Thus, the King of Wisdom is himself the supreme wisdom.
Build a Lei Tsang Temple? No, this wish is still too small! Wutai Mountain has five plateaus and Manjusri's wisdom is complete and perfect. Manjushri Bodhisattva has ''five'' hair knots, east, south, west, north and central, but you only have ''one'' hair knot. It is not enough! Your wish is not big enough. There is a joke that goes like this. A farmer says that the time is not right at present because the weather is not in our favor.
This farmer says to a beggar: ''I'm a farmer which has four mouths in the family to feed. Why is Manjushri Bodhisattva the King of Wisdom? It is because he was once the teacher of seven buddhas. When Shakyamuni Buddha was about to pass away under the twin sala trees Manjushri Bodhisattva appeared and said: ''Why don't you stay in the Saha World and continue to turn the Dharma wheel? Think about it. What is the ultimate wisdom?
Shakyamuni Buddha's realization of the unexcelled state of perfect enlightenment is the ultimate Buddha wisdom. Manjushri Bodhisattva's prajna is also the ultimate wisdom. Today, Grandmaster Lu 's realization is also the ultimate wisdom.

You said that the King is Grandmaster. Let me tell you that the King is Shakyamuni Buddha. The King is Manjushri Bodhisattva. All of the Buddhas are the King. As long as you attain the state of unexcelled perfect enlightenment, you are the King. At the end, you must attain self-realization. You have to awaken your mind and see the original nature. Thereafter you must continue to practice and find your true Buddha nature. Although you are awakened and discover your true mind, you still have to practice and cultivate to see your true Buddha nature.
After you have achieved self-realization, and through this cultivation process have eliminated all your obstacles, you will then be able to accomplish absolute universal enlightenment and wonderful enlightenment.

When you reach wonderful enlightenment, you will become the true King of Wisdom. This will require extremely diligent practice. Manjushri Bodhisattvas have five hair knots', four hair knots', three hair knots', and two hair knots' Manjushris. Five hair knots' Manjushri mean his wisdom is complete and perfect. The most critical point in cultivation is to bring one's wisdom to perfection. I'm not saying you need to build something like Wutai Mountain, that is, find five mountain peaks and build five Lei Tsang temples on them.

It implies that the mind is like a wild beast that can only be tamed with perfected wisdom. Additionally, he is sometimes holding a ruyi scepter instead of a sword. Therefore, depictions of him tend to be youthful and he can be misperceived as a teenager. Although the truth is that he is one of the most venerable bodhisattvas. The secret to his youthful looks is that wisdom creates new perspectives. As a result, those who acquire transcendent wisdom begin to see the world in new ways and their youthful looks are renewed and preserved.
Fully Gold Gilded 8. Mahayana Buddhists believe that Manjushri resides in his bodhimanda that is located on Wutai Shan in northern China. Unfortunately, the sacred mountain home of Manjushri is off limits to visitors. However, there is a 12th century temple that is a popular destination for devotees. Additionally, some scholars note that the Manchus of the Qing Dynasty often took their name in honor of the Bodhisattva. However, the Manjushri mantra Tibetan pronunciation is a bit different and it goes:. Each syllable has an important meaning.
Fortunately, there is a simplified interpretation which elaborates on the meaning of the syllables. OM — This syllable is thousands of years old and has its origins in Hinduism. AH — Represents understanding the true nature of phenomenon. RA — This syllable represents knowledge of the emptiness principle.
