Scene from the Vimalakirti Nirdesa sutra as painted in Dunhuang Mogao caves, China during the Tang dynasty 618-906 AD. Original art mounted on scroll, artist unknown.

Vimalakīrti (Sanskrit:  vimala "stainless, undefiled" + kīrti "fame, glory, reputation") is the central figure in the Vimalakirti Sutra, which presents him as the ideal Mahayana Buddhist ("lay practitioner") and a contemporary of Shakyamuni Buddha. 

Mañjuśrī is a bodhisattva associated with prajñā (insight) in Mahāyāna Buddhism. His name means "Gentle Glory" in Sanskrit. In the Lotus Sutra, Shakyanuni Buddha addressed Bodhisattva Manjushri, son of Dharma King in many citations as one who embodies prajñā (transcendent wisdom).
