Manjushree (God of Wisdom) is identified as the oldest and most significant Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism literature. In early Mahayana texts called Prajnaparamita Sutra, referred Manjushree as the embodiment of transcendent wisdom. Vimala, a pure land assigned to him by Lotus Sutra, is considered as one of the two best pure lands that existed in the past, present, and future. Manjushreeis considered as a fully enlightened Bodhisattva and is greatly respected and worshipped as a Meditational Deity. Manjushree is often depicted as riding on a blue lion or sitting on the skin of a lion. This represents the utilization of knowledge to tame the mind, which is compared to riding or subduing a fierce lion.
