    Manjushri represents the five wisdoms of the Buddhas, which help us to transform the five great poisons that cause suffering.

    Avalokiteshvara represents the Mahayana Bodhichitta ideal of Karuna and Metta, Compassion and Love for all beings.

    These are called the two “wings of the Bird of Enlightenment” but the actual “flapping of the wings is the activity, represented by Great Vajrapani.

    Wisdom and Compassion manifest as Enlightened Activity. This is the Power of the Buddhas.
