A selection of rare and unusual forms of Manjushri. Most are meditational deities (ishtadevata) with detailed textual descriptions of the iconography - mostly originating in the Namasangiti and Siddhaikavira Tantras. Others are narrative based depictions with Manjushri seated in a variety of relaxed poses.
