Heart Sutra

Filed under: Chinese calligraphy — richard @ 9:39 am

A couple years ago, I promised my sister I would write the Heart Sutra (known as “Buddhism in 250+ words”) for her. Copying the Heart Sutra is a favorite past time of many Buddhists and calligraphers. This is about one third, the mug is there to show scale. Probably will redo as it’s OK, but not good enough, I think.

I also did a martial arts poem (written by a famous martial artist)

It reads:
Deep in the mountain dwells a fierce tiger
The vast ocean hides a flood dragon
Hidden in the deep not showing

(hmm… needs better translation)
