The name Jamyang Ling was given from Dalai Lama to the school in 1994 on the occasion of the laying of the foundation stone.

 

Manjushri, in Tibet named Jambe Yang, in Ladakh Jamyang Ling, is a Bodhisattva, who represents wisdom. In his hands he holds on the right a flaming sword, on the left a text book. The sword for severing delusions, the book for teaching wisdom. Manjushri or Jamyang Ling is seen as the Bodhisattva, who is most competent to illustrate the Buddhist teachings, destinguish distress, lead to clarification and therewith to enlightenment.

 

Prayer to Manjushri (Jamyang Ling):

Obeisance to my guru and protector, Manjushri
Who holds to his heart a scripture text
Symbolic of his seeing all things as they are
Whose intelligence shines forth as the sun
Unclouded by delusions or traces of ignorance
Who teaches in sixty ways with the loving compassion
Of a father for his only son
All creatures caught in the prison of Samsara
Confused in the darkness of their ignorance
Overwhelmed by their suffering
You, whose dragon-thunder-like proclamation of
Dharma arouses us from the stupor of our
Delusion and frees us from the iron chains of our karma
Who wields the sword of wisdom
Hewing down suffering
Where ever its sprouts appear
Clearing away the darkness of ignorance
You whose princely body is adorned with the
One hundred and twelve's marks of a Buddha
Who has been pure from the beginning
I bow down to you, o Manjushri
With the brilliance of your wisdom

Om A Ra Pa Ca Na Dhiih

O compassionate one
Illuminate the darkness enclosing my mind
Enlighten my intelligence and wisdom
So that I may gain insight
Into Buddha's words and texts that explain them

(translated by Phuntsok Namgyal, Headmaster)
