Manjushri
(tib.: Yamyang)
stands for the 
highest
Enlightenment-
aspects of
transcendental
wisdom which should
be used to free
oneself from karmic
bondages (his symbols:
book and sword). He is
also the main patron
of astrology and
medicine and an
 emanation of the
water element.
The snow-lion,
on which he rides,
symbolizes
the overcoming
of the ego. His most
famous mantra is:
OM AH RA PA TZA
NA DHI
Seed syllable: DHI
