The calligraphy of perseverance

IMG_20160812_195957.jpg

The artist of this calligraphy, Astrid Kaiser, wrote it in Kaisho writing style for me after me having practiced Zen for 10 years.

The seals contain the message:
– imperial examination  enlightens the day
– music and writing provide joy

The signature expesses: Love – Centre – Heart = Loving Mental Activity

The original calligraphy was written by Hakuin Ekaku, the Japanese Rinzai Zen master who lived in tbe 17/18 th century, 1686 – 1768.
