❤ABOUT TSA TSA
Tsa Tsa (Tibetan: ཚ་ཚ་, Willy: tsha tsha; Sanskrit: satchāya; Pali: sacchāya or sacchāha), a small mold-releasing clay sculpture in Tibetan Buddhism.
Tsa Tsa originated from India and was introduced to Tibet in the seventh century. It is extruded through a metal mold, and the cement is mixed with wheat grains, treasure powder, spices or the ashes of the monk. The patterns on it were mainly in Indian style in the early days, such as the Sky Tower, Gate Tower, Bodhi Pagoda, and the mantras of the Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra. Later, Tibet began to make its own molds, and the patterns of gods and Buddha images and the six-character mantra began to replace the earlier Indian style.
Tsa Tsa is generally placed in the pagoda as a stupa, or placed in a special "Tsa Tsa kang", or enshrined in temple halls, mani piles, monks' cultivation caves and other places.
Manjusri is a bodhisattva associated with prajna (insight) in Mahayana Buddhism. In Tibetan Buddhism, he is also a yidam. His name means "Gentle Glory" in Sanskrit.
Manjusri is depicted as a male bodhisattva wielding a flaming sword in his right hand, representing the realization of transcendent wisdom which cuts down ignorance and duality. The scripture supported by the padma (lotus) held in his left hand is a Prajnaparamita sutra, representing his attainment of ultimate realization from the blossoming of wisdom. Manjusri is often depicted as riding on a blue lion or sitting on the skin of a lion. This represents the use of wisdom to tame the mind, which is compared to riding or subduing a ferocious lion.
