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.
