The calligraphy of perseverance


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.
