Bonus: Manjushri Mantra

Tibetans very commonly invoke wisdom with the mantra associated with Manjushri, the Wisdom Buddha:

Statue of Jamphelyang (Manjushri)
Statue of Jamphelyang (Manjushri), a Bodhisattva associated with Wisdom.

Om ah ra pa tsa na dhi

Manjushri holds a sword in his right hand, for cutting through delusion, and usually in his left, he holds a lotus flower with the Perfection of Wisdom text, the Prajnaparamita.
