Manjushri

Manjushri

Manjushri

Buddha’s powers manifest as compassion( Avalokiteshvara), wisdom( Manjushri) and the strength to be unshakable in the face of adversity (Vajrapani).

We are so fortunate at this time to have the opportunity to receive the blessings of 2 of these —Manjushri as well as Vajrapani from a living lineage holder coming all the way from Amdo, Tibet to Atlanta to give these blessing empowerments.
Manjushri helps our speech to become very clear and our minds to become very sharp. Vajrapani helps us conquer our fears and obstacles to we can do good for ourselves and others.
In this time of so much uncertainty, these blessings are very timely.

Vajrapani

Vajrapani

Vajrapani

On the popular level, Vajrapani, Holder of the Thunderbolt Scepter (symbolizing the power of compassion), is the Bodhisattva who represents the power of all the Buddhas, just as Avalokitesvara represents their great compassion, Manjushri their wisdom, and Tara their miraculous deeds.

For the yogi, Vajrapani is a means of accomplishing fierce determination and symbolizes unrelenting effectiveness in the conquest of negativity. His taut posture is the active warrior pose (pratayalidha), based on an archer’s stance but resembling the en garde position in Western fencing.

His outstretched right hand brandishes a vajra and his left hand deftly holds a lasso – with which he binds demons. He wears a skull crown with his hair standing on end. His expression is wrathful and he has a third eye.

Around his neck is a serpent necklace and his loin cloth is made up of the skin of a tiger, whose head can be seen on his right knee.

We are so fortunate at this time to have the opportunity to receive the blessings of 2 of these —Manjushri as well as Vajrapani from a living lineage holder coming all the way from Amdo, Tibet to Atlanta to give these blessing empowerments.

Manjushri helps our speech to become very clear and our minds to become very sharp. Vajrapani helps us conquer our fears and obstacles to we can do good for ourselves and others.
