White Manjushri

White Mañjushri (Skt. Sita Mañjuśrī; Tib. འཇམ་དབྱངས་དཀར་པོ་, Jamyang Karpo, Wyl. ‘jam dbyangs dkar po) is another form of the wisdom deity Manjushri, white in colour, with one face and two arms. In this form, he is generally represented with his legs crossed in vajra posture; his right hand in the mudra of supreme generosity holding the stem of a lotus on which rests a sword; and his left hand raised holding a blue lotus on which rests a book.[1] There are other traditions where White Mañjushri has the simple attribute of a book resting on an utpala flower (as in the representation on the right), or with multiple faces and arms, or riding a lion.[2]
