Library: NY Adventure 44

NY Adventure 44:
The lion is in the logo of the NY Public Library, which is of course a repository of knowledge. Incidentally, the lion in Buddhist culture represents the great strength and ultimate authority of the truth. Manjusri the Bodhisattva of perfect wisdom rides on a lion as his vehicle too, while the Buddha’s teaching is known as the lion’s roar. While knowing truth is the realm of knowledge, seeing (and applying of) truth is the realm of wisdom.
