Manjushri is the Bodhisattva of Transcendent Wisdom. His name is a compound of the Sanskrit words Man-ju (meaning charming, beautiful, pleasing) and Shri (or Sri , meaning glory, brilliance). The combination of both these words convey the kind of intelligence and wisdom Manjushri represents. 

Wisdom is the most honored virtue in Buddhism. It is called the Mother of all Buddhas. Wisdom is the only path to make possible the great bliss of total freedom from suffering of all living beings.

In his fundamental form he sits on a lotus holding a double-edged flaming sword (to cut through illusion) in his right hand and a blooming lotus that supports the manuscript of the Prajnaparamita Sutra (to revealing the transcendent wisdom of Buddha's teaching) in the left hand.
