This is original hand painted Thangka with Mañjushri Bodhisattva painted with gold color in canvas by Buddhist Lama. This is a real painting not a print. Manjushri is a bodhisattva associated with prajña(transcendent wisdom) in Mahayana Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism, he is also ayidam. His name means \\\"Gentle Glory\\\" in Sanskrit. In Tibetan Buddhism, Mañjuśrī manifests in a number of different Tantric forms. Yamāntaka(meaning \\\'terminator of Yama i.e. Death\\\') is the wrathful manifestation of Mañjuśrī, popular within the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. Other variations upon his traditional form as Mañjuśrī include Guhya-Manjusri, Guhya-Manjuvajra, and Manjuswari. The two former appearances are generally accompanied by ashaktideity embracing the main figure, symbolising union of form and spirit, matter and energy. According to Swayambhu Purana, the Kathmandu Valley was once a lake. It is believed that Mañjuśrī saw a lotus flower in the center of the lake and cut a gorge at Chovar to allow the lake to drain. The place where the lotus flower settled became Swayambhunath Stupa and the valley thus became habitable.
