Manjushri is the Vajrayana Buddhist practice that is the doorway to wisdom. Manjushri holds to his heart a scriptural text symbolic of seeing all things as they, whose dragon-thunder-like proclamation of dharma arouses us from the stupor of our delusions and frees us from the iron chains of our karma. He wields the sword of wisdom hewing down suffering, ignorance and confusion wherever its sprouts appear.
