降魔 means to overcome the Devil, Satan, Demons or Evil. There's a lot of ways to translate this including conquering the devil, evil spirits, evil influences, or someone who habitually performs negative/evil acts.
In Buddhist context, it means to overcome demons, e.g. as the Buddha did at his enlightenment.
驅魔 is the way you would write a sign or symbol to repel the devil or drive away evil in Chinese.
This Japanese proverb means, "Evil cause, evil effect" or "Bad causes bring bad results."
The English equivalent is probably, "Sow evil and reap evil" or more commonly, "You reap what you sow."
Note: This is also considered to be a Buddhist phrase encompassing the idea of karmic retribution.
This literally means, "no fear evil." Chinese grammar and word order is a little different than English. This is the best way to write something that means "fear no evil" in Chinese.
The first character means "not," "don't" or "no."
The second means "fear."
The last two mean "evil" but can also be translated as sinister, vicious, wickedness, or just "bad."
This is "Fear No Evil" in Japanese.
Japanese grammar and phrase construction is different than English, so this literally reads, "Evil Fear Not."
The "evil" Kanji can also be translated as "wickedness."
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.
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.
