The Manjushri Bodhisattva Hall is located on the east of the Grand hall, just opposite to the Samantabhadra Bodhisattva Hall, the structure resembles the style of Ming-Qing dynasty.
The Manjushri Bodhisattva statue is made of bronze, and gilded in gold. The Ruyi in his hand symbolizes the eternal wisdom, and great luck to verything.
There are two plaques inside and outside the Hall, One plaque in the Manjushri Hall is written by famous calligrapher and painter, Peiqiu Chen. The other one, which reads wisdom of Buddha is immense, the meaning it bears is beyond thinking, is written by the calligrapher Zhenwen Le.
The plaques on the pillar of the Hall is written by famous calligrapher Zhimei Xu, first line reads, I’m the Manjushri Bodhisattva, I’m non other, do not confused by the appearance of it, or isn’t it. Meaning that the appearance of worldly being is an illusion, one shouldn’t judge it simply by what thing is, or isn’t. The way of binary opposition thinking is only going to cloud our judgments, one should try to understand things through the wisdom of Prajna. The second line reads, to study the true wisdom of Prajna, is to not pretend having Prajna,and to distinguish the true Prajna from what is only similar
to it. It is referring a passage from Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra, that teaches us that trying to use dharma to solve our worldly problem, is not true Prajna. It can only be obtained after abandoning one’s ego, and the self-centered suffering, one can realize the true wisdom of Prajna.
