About the Product


Process: Ceramic Molding System

Advantages of Ceramic Molding
The main advantages of ceramic molds are: a reusable pattern (the item used to create the shape of the mold) excellent surface finish close dimensional tolerances thin cross-sections and intricate shapes can be cast. For undercuts and other difficult to cast features part of the pattern can be made from wax in conjunction with a standard pattern; essentially using investment and ceramic mold casting techniques together. The main disadvantages are: it is only cost effective for small- to medium-sized production runs and the ceramic is not reusable. Ferrous and high-temperature non-ferrous are most commonly cast with these processes; other materials cast include: aluminum copper magnesium titanium and zinc alloys.



Manjushree: Brief Introduction

Manjushree is a Sanskrit word meaning 'gentle glory'. In Sanskrit shree means 'glorious or honorable' His name means who embodies enlightened wisdom. He confers mastery of the Dharma wisdom and eloquence and teaches the path of a bodhisattva in the Mahayana tradition.

Manjushree is the Bodhisattva who holds the flaming sword [Skt. Khadga] of enlightenment by his left hand in a warning( Tarjani) hand gesture ( Mudra) in his left hand representing his realization of wisdom to cut through ignorance & wrong view. His right hand depicted in teaching (Jnana Mudra) holds the stem of a Blue Lotus (Utpala) flower upon which rests the Book (Pustaka) of Perfection of Transcendental Wisdom. The blue lotus is a symbol of the victory of the spirit over the senses and signifies the wisdom of knowledge. This represents the lotus that he obtained from the middle of the lake in the Kathmandu Valley out of which grew a lotus bearing a Blue Flame which represents wisdom. Manjushree sits upon a moon disc upon a lotus with an elongated stem arising from a lake. He wears a gold diadem fitted with precious jewels. He wears a silk scarf fastened at the waist and over this a softly glowing green scarf decorated with golden motifs. His head is silhouetted against a nimbus. The lotus he is sitting on has an elongated stem and arises from a lake representing his recovery of the blue flame of transcendent wisdom and the teaching he originated. The white sash is the attire of the Vajrayana school of Buddhism.CommentaryAccording to legend Manjushree founded the Nepalese civilisation. In ancient times way before Buddha Shakyamuni the Kathmandu Valley was a vast lake. The Buddha Vipashyin came to Nepal to meditate upon the hill above the lake. Wishing to give the rough mountain people an object of worship Vipashyin threw a lotus seed into the lake. When this lotus bloomed a blue flame of wisdom light shone from the centre of its thousand petals. This light was called the Swayambhunath Dharmadhatu the Self-Sprung Infinite Field of Light and the flame of the enlightened mind of the primal Buddha Vajradhara burned at its center. The light of Vajradhara also emanated in the colours of the rainbow and in each of the five colours appeared one of the Five Buddhas - Vairochana Akshobhya Ratnasambhava Amitabha and Amoghasiddhi. Then Manjushri went to Nagarkot Peak on the edge of the lake and after having pondered in Samadhi how best the lake may be drained with his keen edged sword of wisdom he cut three Gorges. After the lake had been drained and the Valley bottom made suitable for cultivation Manjushree founded the city of Patan which was originally called Manjupattan. He taught the people many things. Manjushree manifests himself in the form of Yamantaka known also as Vajrabhairava in order to overcome the lord of Death Yama.
The Book (Pustaka) represents Transcendent Wisdom which came to beembodied by the Dyani {Pancha} Buddha Families. The book symbolically contains Buddhist teaching that had been lost to mankind & which was revealed to Manjushree. The book is commonly mistaken for the Prajna Paramita which was written by many hands between 100 & 200 CE realising the Boddhisattva Principle. The book of Manjushree alludes to Wisdom and the emanation of the Five Transcendent Buddha Families. These are Vairochana Akshobhya Ratnasambhava Amitabha & Amoghasiddhi. Wisdom Energy is a power which can extinguish the Five Negative afflictions. Each family heads wisdom energy to overcome these Five hindrances to enlightenment which are greed hatred delusion jealousy & pride.
