Believe

China xiāng xìn
Believe Wall Scroll

相信 is the Chinese way to say believe.

This specifically means to be convinced that something is true or to accept something as true or real.

This can also be translated as "convinced of," "have trust in," "have faith in"

Believe in Yourself

Japan jibun o shinjiru
Believe in Yourself Wall Scroll

自分を信じる means, "believe in yourself," "have faith in yourself," or "believe in myself" (can be myself or yourself depending in if you're saying it to yourself or someone else).


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Believe in Yourself

China xiāng xìn zì jǐ
Believe in Yourself Wall Scroll

相信自己 means, "believe in yourself" in Chinese.

Believe / Faith / Trust

śraddhā
China xìn
Japan shin
Believe / Faith / Trust Wall Scroll

This character can mean to believe, truth, faith, fidelity, sincerity, trust and confidence in Chinese, old Korean Hanja and Japanese Kanji.

This single character is often part of other words with similar meanings.

It is one of the five basic tenets of Confucius.

In Chinese, it sometimes has the secondary meaning of a letter (as in the mail) depending on context but it will not be read that way when seen on a wall scroll.

In Buddhist context, this is śraddhā (faith through hearing or being taught).

Trust in God / Faith in God

Japan kami wo shin ze yo
Trust in God / Faith in God Wall Scroll

神を信ぜよ is a way to express, "Trust in God" in Japanese.

The first character is "God."

The second character is a particle that links the ideas here.

The last three characters are a word that means, "to believe," "to believe in," "to place trust in," "to confide in," "to have faith in."

Basically, this is the Japanese phrase for, "Have faith in God," "Believe in God," or "Trust in God."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Trust in God / Belief in God

Japan kami no shin kou
Trust in God / Belief in God Wall Scroll

神の信仰 is the simplest way to express, "Trust in God" in Japanese.

The first character means God, deity, divinity, or spirit (in this case, it will be read as God).

The second character is a particle that links the ideas.

The last two characters mean faith, belief, or creed, in religious context.

Faith

China xìn niàn
Japan shinnen
Faith Wall Scroll

These characters express the idea of "having a belief," or "trusting in the unseen."

This word could also be translated as beliefs or convictions.


Note: Also considered to be one of the Seven Heavenly Virtues.


See Also:  Devotion | Dedication | Trust

Religious Devotion / Faith in God / Religious Faith

China xìn yǎng
Japan shin kou
Religious Devotion / Faith in God / Religious Faith Wall Scroll

信仰 means firm belief, faith, persuasion, conviction, and sometimes religion or creed in Chinese, Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja.

This word clearly fits religious connotation of the English word "devotion."

信仰 is often used to refer to a person of faith or a religious person.

This can be directly translated as "firm belief," "creed," "conviction" or simply as "religious" depending on context.

Some will also use this to mean "trust in God" in Japanese (though the term for God is not actually in this title).

It should be noted that this word is a little strange alone on a wall scroll.


While this can be pronounced in Japanese, it's not a great selection for a wall scroll if your audience is Japanese.

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark

China xìn niǎn shì zài lí míng qián de hēi àn zhōng néng gǎn dào guāng míng de niǎo
Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark Wall Scroll

信唸是在黎明前的黑闇中能感到光明的鳥 is a philosophical poem/quote from Indian Poet and Philosopher, Rabindranath Tagore.

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, 1915


This quote is not sourced, and therefore several variations exist in English. Some suggest the original was in the Bengali language.

This, of course, is the Chinese translation which has the meaning of, "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark."

Firm Belief
Strong Faith

China jiān xìn
Japan ken shin
Firm Belief / Strong Faith Wall Scroll

This word means: to believe firmly; firm faith; without any doubt.

Japanese Christians sometimes use this term to mean the rite of confirmation.

This can also be the Japanese given name, Kenshin.

Love Faith Strength

China ài xìn qiáng
Love Faith Strength Wall Scroll

愛信強 is the shortest way to write the word list, "love faith strength."

The first characters is love, the second is faith or believe, and the third means strong or strength.


It should be noted that word lists like this are not as natural sounding in Chinese as word lists can be in English. It's more common to have a full phrase (with subject, verb, and object) or single words on calligraphy wall scrolls in Asia.

Belief / Trust

China xìn rèn
Japan shinnin
Belief / Trust Wall Scroll

信任 means belief or trust in Chinese characters, old Korean Hanja, and Japanese Kanji.

It can also mean, to have confidence in, or credence.

Trust / To Have Faith

China xìn lài
Japan shinrai
Trust / To Have Faith Wall Scroll

Trust is having faith in someone or something. It is a positive attitude about life. You are confident that the right thing will happen without trying to control it or make it happen. Even when difficult things happen, trust helps us to find the gift or lesson in it.

This word can also be translated as confidence, reliance, or dependence; thus it can also mean "to rely on" or "to depend on."


頼There is a slight deviation in the Japanese Kanji form of the second character. 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.

Good Faith

China shàn yì
Japan zen i
Good Intentions / Good Will / Good Faith Wall Scroll

善意 is a word that means good intentions, good will, or to things done in good faith in Chinese, Japanese, and old Korean Hanja.

It's sort of the reason you do good deeds, or the desire you have inside yourself to do the right thing.

This can also be translated as benevolence, kindness, virtuous mind, positive mindset, or favorable sense.

This word is also used in legal context for things that are done in good faith (regardless of outcome).

In Japanese, this can be the personal name Yoshi or Yoshii.

Faith Hope Love

China xìn wàng ài
Faith Hope Love Wall Scroll

信望愛 is a Chinese list of words meaning faith, hope, and love.

信望愛 is not a typical phrase in Chinese but rather just random words strung together. There's no bad meaning, it's just not typical Chinese grammar.

Faith Love Peace

China xìn ài hé
Japan shin ai wa
Faith Love Peace Wall Scroll

信愛和 is a word list that reads, "Faith Love Peace." 信愛和 is not a natural phrase in Chinese or Japanese, as it lacks a subject, verb, and object. But if this is what you want, here it is.

Love Faith Strength

China bó ài xìn niàn lì liàng
Love Faith Strength Wall Scroll

博愛信念力量 is the verbose way to write the word list, "love faith strength."


It should be noted that word lists like this are not as natural sounding in Chinese as word lists can be in English. It's more common to have a full phrase (with subject, verb, and object) or single words on calligraphy wall scrolls in Asia.

Faith Hope Love

Japan shinkou to kibou to ai
Faith Hope Love Wall Scroll

信仰と希望と愛 is a Japanese list of words (not really a phrase) meaning faith, hope, and love. Some have associated this word list with Corinthians 13:13, though there are no specific religious connotations in this word list, and it's not directly from that Japanese Bible verse.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

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 nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

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.

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.
