In this dharma talk, we'll explore the facets of wisdom through invoking and befriending Manjusri, the Bodhisattva of Insight. Looking at the Bodhisattvas as expressions of our own being can support us in expanding our ideas of wisdom, compassion, and strength. When invoked, these beings can become helpful guides and friends on our spiritual path.
