Manjushri is the embodiment of the wisdom of all enlightened beings. Through receiving the special blessings of this empowerment and sincerely relying upon Manjushri, we can increase our wisdom. If we lack wisdom this is our greatest obstacle for developing permanent happiness. Wisdom is like an inner teacher that we carry in our heart. Such wisdom functions as a great protector, keeping us safe from ignorance and its many unpleasant results. Since Buddha clearly explained that the ultimate source of all mental and physical suffering arises from ignorance, we should make effort to increase our wisdom.

In general, our mind is wild and uncontrolled. This leaves us vulnerable to pain and suffering both great and small. Since we have no idea how to tame our mind we often seek comfort in intoxicants and other negative behaviors that quickly turn into additional sources of misery and despair. Therefore, we need to experience a revolution in our mind, turning upside down its bad habits and ways of thinking, and replacing these with wholesome and virtuous thoughts. This course will explain how to initiate such an internal revolution.
