Chastity

China zhēn jié
Japan teisetsu
Chastity Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this would be defined as "The state of being sexually pure" or "chaste." Culturally, this especially applies to young women. This is not actually far off from our western view on this subject. In Japanese and Korean, this could also be used to express virtue, faithfulness and fidelity.

Chastity

China shā shǐ tí dí
Chastity Wall Scroll

沙史提迪 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Chastity. This sounds like Chastity but does not mean chastity. I suggest you choose a Chinese word that means chastity instead.

Chastity

Japan chasutitii
Chastity Wall Scroll

This is the name Chastity written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). If your name is Chastity, I suggest using a word that means Chastity, rather than this transliteration of the name.


Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Chastity

China zhēn jié
Japan teiketsu / teketsu
Chastity Wall Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese word is often used in variations of the Seven Heavenly Virtues to represent chastity.

Chastity / Pure Heart

Also: Clean / Innocent / Pure
China chún jié
Japan jun ketsu
Chastity / Pure Heart Wall Scroll

This would be associated with "chastity" but with the direct meaning of clean, innocent, and pure. If you were expressing the idea of a "pure heart" in Chinese, while not literal, this would be the word you would use.

In Japanese, this word is sometimes used to express purity.

In Korean, it describes purity, chastity, virginity, and innocence (basically the same as the Chinese definition).

Ethics / Ethical / Morality

China dào dé
Japan dou toku
Ethics / Ethical / Morality Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean word can also be defined as "moral principles," morality, ethics, ethical, morals, or virtue.

The first character is the same that is associated with Daoism / Taoism. 道德 is also used to express morality, virtue, or simply morals.


徳There is a slight deviation in the Japanese Kanji form. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people.

Extreme Faithfulness

Japan tei retsu
Extreme Faithfulness Wall Scroll

貞烈 is the Japanese Kanji for, "Extreme Faithfulness."

The first Kanji means "firm adherence to one's principles," chastity (of a woman), chaste, etc.

The second Kanji means ardent, intense, fierce, stern, upright, to give one's life for a noble cause, exploits, achievements, virtuous, and in some contexts, heroic.

Now you get the idea why this refers to someone who is extremely faithful (to a cause, themselves, their religious beliefs, or their philosophy.

Fidelity / Personal Integrity / Honor

China cāo shǒu
Japan soushu
Fidelity / Personal Integrity / Honor Wall Scroll

操守 is the Chinese and Japanese Kanji for personal integrity, constancy, fidelity, and honor/honour.

The original meaning of the first character is chastity, fidelity, honor/honour, and/or faith.

The second character means to defend, guard, keep watch, be observant.

So, this is about being observant of, and guarding your integrity and honor.

Honor and Integrity

China jié cāo
Japan sessou
Honor and Integrity Wall Scroll

This means honorable, integrity of principle, constancy, honor, and in a certain context, chastity.

Please note that there are a few ways to relay the idea of integrity in Asian languages, and more than one way to define honor in English. This is far from the only way to express "honor and integrity."

Modesty

China qiān xùn
Japan kenson
Modesty Wall Scroll

Depending on context, this can be translated as modesty, humbleness or humility.

The first character means "modesty" while the second means "yielding." Together it could be stated as "yielding modesty."

Moral and Virtuous

China
Japan toku
Moral and Virtuous Wall Scroll

德 is the simple way to express the ideas of having virtue, morals, kindness, benevolence, goodness etc. 德 also happens to be the first character of the Chinese word for Germany.


徳There is a slight deviation in the Japanese Kanji form. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people.

Prudence

China shèn zhòng
Japan shin chou
Prudence Wall Scroll

Can also mean "cautious" or "careful."

This is considered to be one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues.


慎慎 Note: Depending on your choice of Chinese or Japanese calligraphers, the first Kanji will vary slightly. It is technically the same character. Japanese tend to leave a space between the upper and lower portions of this particular Kanji. See sample images to the right.

Purity

Clean and Pure
China jìng
Japan jou
Purity Wall Scroll

淨 is the most simple way to express purity or cleanliness in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja. As a single character, the concept is broad: This can be a verb (the act of cleaning, purifying, or to cleanse) but it can also be the state of being clean, pure, and chaste. In some context, it can be a place to clean (like a bathing room for the soul in a Buddhist context). In Japanese, this can be a female given name "Jou" or "jō" (the Japanese equivalent of the English girl's name "Chastity").

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
