The statue of Manjushri is depicted seated in padmasana wielding a powerful sword called 'Prajna Khadga' or 'the Sword of Wisdom' representing his ability to cut through ignorance and delusion. His left hand is in vitarka mudra ( Mudra of teaching) holding the stem of a lotus flower upon which blossoms the Prajnaparamita texts or perfection of wisdom. The Manjushri Vitarka mudra symbolizes the transmission of knowledge and the teachings of Dharma, and is a powerful symbol in Buddhism often used in meditation and prayer to help cultivate wisdom and understanding.
