Manjusri

by Amaraghosha (2016)

This talk is one of a series of talks about archetypal Bodhisattvas.

Amaraghosa introduces us to the Bodhisattva Manjusri in both his peaceful and wrathful forms. He explores the symbolism of the figure in Mahayana literature and relates this to Hinayana suttas.

Amaraghosha then explores the importance of wisdom in the Buddhist tradition through teachings including the Noble eightfold Path and the Four Noble Truths.

This talk was given at the Croydon Buddhist Centre in 2016 as part of our regular Saturday morning sangha class.
