Art Description

Painting: Ink on Paper.

This Zen calligraphy scroll shows a straightforward semi-cursive calligraphy of Mushin (Jap.), or Wuxin (Chin.) translated as No-thought, No-mind, or as Freedom from Thought. Mushin is the core principle of Zen practice and Chinese/Japanese martial arts.

The calligraphy shows the two kanji

無 MU, - no
心 SHIN, - heart, mind

What does Mushin, No-thought, mean?

As I understand it, it is living with a straightforward mind, in all activities, sitting, standing or walking, cultivating one’s mind, not clinging to anything, thought after thought, acting in accordance with one’s Buddha nature, moving freely and spontaneously.

The Mu-shin calligraphy is mounted on a silver color, matte silk scroll and has a natural wooden roller at the bottom. The scroll has some minor spots on the silk mounting, but its presence is clear and quiet.

Size of the scroll in cm: 191 x 80,5 x 0,2 cm. The wooden roller adds 5 cm or 1.96 inches on each side.
