…You, whose dragon thunder-like proclamation of Dharma, arouses us from the stupor of delusions
And frees us from the iron chains of our karma, who wields the Sword of Wisdom
Hewing down suffering wherever its sprouts appear, clearing away the darkness of ignorance….
OM AH RA PA TSA NA DHI
I bow down to you, O Manjushri. With the brilliance of your wisdom, O Compassionate One,
Illuminate the darkness enclosing my mind.
Enlighten my intelligence and wisdom so that I may gain insight
Into Buddha’s words and the texts that explain them.
