Manjusri is an enlightened being known as abodhisattva("buddha to be") in the Buddhist traditions of Mahayana and Vajrayana. Manjusri is believed to be the embodiment of enlightened wisdom and is associated with awareness and doctrine. The name comes from the Sanskrit,manju, meaning “pleasant,” “charming” and “sweet”; andsri, meaning “radiant,” “splendid” and “auspicious.” It is typically translated as “gentle glory.”
Manjusri is believed by some to have been a disciple of the Buddha. He is so-described inMahayanascriptures, but is not mentioned in Pali texts.
