再見 is the most common "goodbye" in Mandarin Chinese. It literally/directly translates, "again see" or more naturally, "See you again." It's a lot like the English, "See you later."
Theoretically, this can be used in Japanese but in Japanese, it's seen as the Chinese way to say goodbye. It's like English people saying ciao! or ¡adiós!
This is a strange title for a wall scroll. I guess it's best if you plan to put this by the door where people will see it when they leave your home or business.
The word namaste comes from Sanskrit and is a common greeting in the Hindi and Nepali languages exchanged by devout Hindu or Buddhist people in Southern Asia (especially India).
Here you can see the Chinese form (and Japanese but not well-known in Japan) of this word which is used describe a Buddhist (or Hindu) greeting with palms closed together in a prayerful manner, generally at chest level. However, this selection of characters describes the act, and is not a word spoken during the greeting. In fact, words or a greeting is seldom spoken when two Chinese or Japanese Buddhists meet. The greeting is silent, and respectful but composed completely of body language.
Note that the greeting namaste as well as the act of placing palms together are used both as a hello and goodbye (kind of like the word aloha in Hawaiian).
In Chinese, this means to meet again, until we meet again, or goodbye.
In Japanese, this may be understood as reunion or meeting again.
This title can mean the Buddha of the Western paradise. But it's more a chant that means, "May the lord Buddha preserve us!" or "Merciful Buddha!."
阿彌陀佛 is also a translation to Chinese, Japanese, and Korean for, "Amitâbha Buddha."
Asian Buddhists will often greet and say goodbye to each other with this phrase/chant/title.

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.
The wall scroll that Sandy is holding in this picture is a "large size"
single-character wall scroll.
We also offer custom wall scrolls in small, medium, and an even-larger jumbo size.
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.
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.
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.
