Manjushri is the Wisdom Buddha, the embodiment of the wisdom of all the Buddhas. By relying upon Manjushri we shall naturally increase our wisdom. Wisdom is a virtuous, intelligent mind that understands its object unmistakenly and functions to dispel deluded doubt. Because it is a virtuous mind, wisdom always causes happiness; it never causes suffering or problems. Moreover, because it understands its object unmistakenly, wisdom always leads to correct paths and correct actions; it never deceives living beings. Wisdom is like an inner Teacher that we carry in our hearts, and like a Protector that protects us from engaging in wrong actions and having to experience their unpleasant results. With wisdom our mind is always balanced and comfortable.
In this sadhana we first practice self-generation as Manjushri according to the instructions of Action Tantra. Afer meditating on divine pride and clear appearance we then engage in the practice of receiving the attainments of the seven types of wisdom in conjunction with the recitation of Manjushri’s mantra. Finally we offer tormas and praise to the in-front-generation.
If we practice this sadhana regularly and sincerely we shall definitely improve our Dharma wisdom, and eventually we shall attain the ultimate peace of full enlightenment.
This sadhana also contains a special prayer entitled Praise to Manjushri, which we can recite at any time.
