Mañjuśrī is a bodhisattva associated with prajñā (wisdom) in Mahāyāna Buddhism. His name means "Gentle Glory" in Sanskrit.Mañjuśrī is also known by the fuller name of Mañjuśrīkumārabhūta,

Saraswati (Sanskritसरस्वतीgoddess of knowledge, music, art, speech, wisdom, and learning. 

Yab-yum (Tibetan literally, "father-mother") is a common symbol in the Buddhist art of IndiaBhutanNepal, and Tibet. It represents the primordial union of wisdom and compassion, depicted as a male deity in union with his female consort through the similar idea of interpenetration or "coalescence" (Wylie: zung-'jug; Sanskrit: yuganaddha), using the concept of Indra's net to illustrate this.[1] The male figure represents compassion and skillful means, while the female partner represents insight. In yab-yum the female is seated on the male’s lap. There is a rare presentation of a similar figure but reversed, with the male sitting on the female’s lap, called yum-yab.[2]
