Painting: Ink on Paper.
The calligraphy is brushed on rice paper and is ready to be framed.
This calligraphy depicts the Heart Sutra Mantra 'gyatei gyatei, haragyatei, harasôgyatei, boji sowaka'.
This wisdom mantra from the Heart Sutra, that is said to reconnect one with one's own inherent awakened nature, is brushed in the gyosho or semi-cursive style of Japanese calligraphy.
The calligraphy shows a balanced brush work, with characters that combine a free, dynamic brush work with well formed brush strokes.
The Sanskrit version of this mantra is :
"Gate gate, paragate parasangate bodhi svaha."
The English translation is:
"Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone completely beyond, enlightenment hail!"
Size of the calligraphy in cm: 42 x 29 x 0.2 cm.
