Manjushri 300 A.D.

The bodhisattva Manjushri is one of the eight great bodhisattvas who were the closest disciples of the Buddh In this form, he sometimes appears whitish-green in color and holding a lily to symbolize renunciation of the destructive emotions. The embodiment of the knowledge and wisdom of all the buddhas, traditionally depicted with a sword in his right and a text in his left hand.

Meaning of Manjushri

The word Manju means “charming, beautiful, pleasing” and Shri means “glory, brilliance”. 
The Bodhisattva is regarded as the crown prince of Buddhist teachings, or the one who can best explain the Buddhist wisdom, that is able to extinguish afflictions and bring about enlightenment.

Manjushri has this title because eons ago, he was the instructor for seven different Buddhas, the last being Sakyamuni Buddha.
