Manjushri (Tib. Jampeyang) is the Buddha of Wisdom. Although there are many forms of Manjushri, he is often depicted holding aloft the sword of wisdom in his right hand, cutting through all delusions and confusions while emerging from his left hand is a lotus holding a volume of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra. In this composition which is painted with antiqued colors, Shakyamuni Buddha sits right above him with Four Arm Avalokitesvara to the right of Shakyamuni and Padmasambhava to the left. In the two bottom corners are White and Green Taras.
