Blessings and Protection

Japan shukufuku to hogo

Blessings and Protection

This means, "blessings and protection", in Japanese.

Blessings and Protection

China bǎo yòu

Blessings and Protection

This is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect", "blessing", or "to bless".

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.

祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

Blessings on this Home

China wǔ fú lín mén

Blessings on this Home

This literally means, "five good-fortunes arrive [at the] door". It is understood to mean, "may the five blessings descend upon this home".

These blessing are known in ancient China to be: longevity, wealth, health, virtue, and a natural death (living to old age). This is one of several auspicious sayings you might hear during Chinese New Years.

Blessings and Good Wishes

China zhù fú
Japan shukufuku
ribbon top
Blessings and Good Wishes

This is a nice way to give good wishes to someone. It can be a general blessing, or used to congratulate someone for a special occasion or graduation.

This has a good meaning in Japanese, but more appropriate when expressed orally. This is not a natural selection for a wall scroll if your audience is Japanese.

Pursuit of Happiness

China zhuī xún xìng fú
ribbon top
Pursuit of Happiness

The first two characters mean "to pursue", "to track down", or "to search for".

The last two mean happiness, happy, or blessed.

This is the best way to translate the English phrase "pursuit of happiness" into Chinese.

Pursuit of Happiness

Japan koufuku o motome te
ribbon top
Pursuit of Happiness

This is "Pursuit of Happiness" or "In Search of Happiness" in Japanese..

Here's how the characters break down:
幸福 (koufuku) happiness; blessedness; joy; well-being.
を (o) particle
求め {motome} to want; to seek; to pursue; to request
て (te) particle

God Bless You / May God Protect You

China shàng dì bǎo yòu
ribbon top
God Bless You / May God Protect You

This is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you".

See Also...  Guardian Angel


China xìng fú
Japan koufuku
ribbon top

This is a general state of "happiness" which can also be translated as truly-blessed, welfare, well-being, or fortunate.

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

China tiān ēn
ribbon top
Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

This is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free".

Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on"), but it's rarely-used in Japan anymore. Therefore this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

Blessed by Heaven

Japan ten kei
ribbon top
Blessed by Heaven

This means "Heaven's Blessing", "Blessings from Heaven", or "Blessed by Heaven" in Japanese Kanji.

Depending on the context in which this is used, it can also mean, "gift of nature", or even, "natural resources" (as in Heaven or God bestowed things like oil, iron, gold, and other natural resources upon mankind).

Heaven Blesses the Diligent

China tiān dào chóu qín
ribbon top
Heaven Blesses the Diligent

This can be interpreted a few different ways:
God blesses those who work hard.
It is the way of Heaven to smile on the diligent.
God will reward those that are worthy.
Heaven blesses those who are diligent.

Whichever translation you like, a scroll like this on your wall may serve as a reminder to work hard because your diligence will pay off both in this life and the next.

Note: This can be pronounced in Korean, but it's not a commonly-used term.

Good Luck

China xìng yùn
Japan kou un
ribbon top
Good Luck

This can be translated as "good luck", "fortunate", "lucky" and/or "good fortune" in Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Occasionally, this is also translated as a type of happiness or a short way to write serendipity.

God Bless You

Japan odaijini
ribbon top
God Bless You

This means, "God bless you" in Japanese. It can also mean, "take care of yourself", or "get well soon". It's not always associated with a religious meaning.

Divine Protection

China jiā hù
Japan ka go
ribbon top
Divine Protection

This is Japanese for "divine protection" or "the saving grace of God".

Please consider this blessing to be Japanese only. This can have the same meaning in the context of Buddhism in Chinese, but it's also a nickname for "intensive care" at Chinese hospitals.

Note: My Japanese translator says this is not very commonly-used in Japanese. I added this because a customer asked for it. There is not really a better Japanese phrase to express this idea - so this is it if you want it.

Divine Blessing

China bì yòu
ribbon top
Divine Blessing

This is a Chinese way to say "divine blessing".

This can also mean: to bless; to protect; divine protection.

Also written as 庇祐 (variant second character).

Bless this House

Japan kono-ka ni shukufuku o
ribbon top
Bless this House

This means, "Bless this house" or "Bless this home", in Japanese.

Some may also translate this as, "Bless this family", since the Kanji for home can also mean family.

Blessed by God

Japan kami ni yotte shukufuku sa remashita
ribbon top
Blessed by God

This means, "Blessed by God" in Japanese.

This would be understood to mean, "We have been blessed by God".

Grace of God / Divine Blessing

Japan shin kei
ribbon top
Grace of God / Divine Blessing

This can be translated as, "God's Blessing", "Blessed by God", or "Divine Blessing" in Japanese Kanji.

Grace from Heaven
Grace from God

Japan kami no on kei
ribbon top
Grace from Heaven<br>Grace from God

The first two characters act to create a word that means "divine", "God's", or "The Spirit's".

The last two Kanji mean grace, favor, favour, blessing, or benefit.

Good Luck / Good Fortune

Japan fuku
ribbon top
Good Luck / Good Fortune

This Character is pronounced "fu" in Chinese.

The character "fu" is posted by virtually all Chinese people on the doors of their homes during the Spring Festival (closely associated with the Chinese New Years).

One tradition from the Zhou Dynasty (beginning in 256 B.C.) holds that putting a fu symbol on your front door will keep the goddess of poverty away.

This character literally means good fortune, prosperity, blessed, happiness, and fulfillment.

God Bless You
God Be With You

Japan kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
ribbon top
God Bless You<br>God Be With You

This is about as close as you can get to, "God Bless You" in Japanese.

This literally means, "[May] God Protect [You]". It can also mean, "God is Always With You", as the word in this phrase that means "protect" can also mean to follow or be with. In fact, the Japanese dictionary entry for that word reads like this: to protect; to guard; to defend; to keep (i.e. a promise); to abide; to observe; to follow.

Between the protect word that can also mean to keep a promise, and the fact we're talking about God, the "always" is implied.


China ēn
Japan on
ribbon top

This is often translated as "kind act from above", as in "The Grace of God". This doesn't necessarily have to come from God. It could be a favor paid to you, or help that you received (or gave). Of course, you can decide for yourself whether the grace or favor given to you by a friend is actually a gift from God.

Other possible translations of this character:
Favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, beneficial Influence, kindness, indebtedness, obligation, and benevolent influence.

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.
