Deity handcrafted from ivory mammoth from Yakuti, Siberia
Mammoth's Ivory is easily recognizable by the curved Schreger lines crossing at an angle of less than 90 degrees while those of the elephant intersect at ±115 degrees. Elephant ivory is strictly prohibited for sale.
Most mammoth species died out 15,000 to 12,000 years ago. A last species of dwarf mammoth is recorded in northern Siberia, on Wrangel Island, between 5,700 and 1,700 BC. J.
Our mammoth ivory comes from the Siberian permafrost in Yakuti.
Manjushri is the protector of people born under the sign of the lievre.
Manjushrî was a disciple of Shâkyamuni and, along with Samanta-bhadra, one of the acolytes in the groups of images called Shaka Sanzon, "the three venerable of Shâkyamuni" in Japan. It is "The One whose beauty is charming," the Bodhisattva "of wonderful virtue and gentle majesty."
Important in the Mahayuna and Vajrayana Buddhisms. It is invoked for, among other things, success in studies. It represents the wisdom, intelligence and power of the mind. "His worship confers divine Wisdom, mastery of Dharma, faithful memory, mental perfection, eloquence. He would have indefinitely delayed his accession to the state of Buddha, driven by an infinite compassion that led him to remain in this world until there was no longer a single being to lead on the path of supreme enlightenment.
It is the protector of people born under the sign of the lip/rabbit.
The two main emblems of Manjushri, the bodhisattva of wisdom, are the flaming sword and the sutra of perfection, in his left hand, near the heart. The flaming sword represents manjushri's penetrating intelligence, which cuts off all illusions, revealing the empty nature of all things. The sword represents above all wisdom, discernment that tears the veils of ignorance.
Manjushrî would have been the initiator and master of the Buddhas of the past ages. It should also be that of the Buddha of the future, Maitreya. "Manjushrî is the father and mother of the Bodhisattva, and he is their spiritual friend." The Buddha describes Manjushrî and praises him in the Manjushrîparinirvâna-sutra. This Bodhisattva was therefore very often represented, both in India and Tibet, China and Japan, as well as in Nepal, of which he is, according to tradition, the founder from China. His images appear only belatedly in Central Asia and on some Chinese steles, associated with Vimalakîrti (jap. Yuima Koji) in the 6th century.
According to Nepalese legend, Majushri opened the Kathmandu Valley by cutting a gap in the mountains surrounding the valley with a blow of his blazing sword. The lake occupying the latter was thus able to empty itself through the chobar gorges, which bear the mark of this blow.
The most well-known Mantra of Ma'kwaar is Om Ah Ra Pa Tcha Na Dhih, the syllables-germs Dhih and Mum are associated with Manjushri. To have a good memory or develop one's intelligence one often addresses the bodhisattva of great wisdom, and the recitation of the mantra is very practiced in China.
Long version: Namah samanta buddh-num. He he Kumaraka vimukti pathasthita smara smara pratijà svàh.
His cult in China developed from the Northern and Southern Dynasties (420 — 589) on Mount Wut臺ai. Wutai Shan is one of the four sacred Buddhist mountains in China. It peaks at 3,058 m at Yedou Peak. It is located on the territory of the prefecture city of Xinzhou, in Shanxi province, only a few dozen kilometers south of one of the five sacred mountains of China: Mount Heng and less than 300 km from Beijing. It was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List on 26 June 2009.
The Elephant God Ganesh (or Ganesha/Ganapati, also sometimes called siddhi data) is one of the most popular gods of Hinduism and is also widely represented in the Temples of Theravada Buddhism (India, Thailand, Indonesia...) and in those of Vajrayana (Tibet, Nepal...). It plays an important role in tantrism and is present in the Tibetan pantheon where it is recognized mainly as a deity of wealth but also is part of the attributes of certain wrathful deities, somewhat frightening, terrible, secret and fear, discarding obstacles.
The Japanese name of Ganesh is "Shoten" (聖) or Kangiten (歓喜), Japanese Buddhism considers it a manifestation of The Kannon Bosatsu (聖観音菩薩). In Japanese, the kanji is used as the equivalent of the Hindu Deva.
