Divine Spirit

China yù yǐng
Japan goei
Divine Spirit

御影 is a Japanese word that means divine spirit, or honorific language for "spirit of the dead."

This can also refer to an image of a deity, buddha, royal, noble, etc.)

In Buddhist context, it can mean (wooden) images of saints or deities.

御影 is also a Japanese name, Mikage.


Note: This is also a word in Chinese but not used very often in China (except perhaps by certain Buddhists).

Spirit / Spiritual Essence

China shén
Japan shin / kami
Spirit / Spiritual Essence

神 is the simplest way to write spirit in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean.

This single character alone will conjure up ideas of the spiritual world. 神 can also be translated as "vital awareness" as in the fact that one must know they exist to exist (I think, therefore, I am).

Other translations include:
God, deity, mysterious, divine essence, lively, spiritual being, divinity, supernatural, soul, mind, nerves, and energy. In some extended context it can mean genius or unusual.

Japanese romanizations vary a lot when this character is combined into other words. However, shin is the original pronunciation taken from Chinese into Japanese. You'll also see it romanized as kami, gami, jin, and a few others, depending on context.

Johrei / Jyorei

Japan jourei
Johrei / Jyorei

Jyorei or Johrei is a healing art that uses divine light to dissolve the spiritual impurities that are the source of all physical, emotional, and personal problems.

浄霊 / 浄靈 is a Japanese title that can refer to the purification of spirit described above, but this is also the word for exorcism in Japanese.


Romanization variations include Jyorei, Johrei, Jourei and Jore. Regardless of romanization, the actual pronunciation is like "Joe Ray."

Grace from Heaven
Grace from God

Japan kami no on kei
Grace from Heaven / Grace from God

神の恩恵 means God's Grace in Japanese.

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.

Yoga

China yú jiā
Japan yu ga
Yoga

瑜伽 is probably the most common and universal title for Yoga.

In Chinese and Japanese, this is considered a Buddhist practice. 瑜伽 is really a loanword from an original Buddhist Sanskrit word.

Yoga can also be written 瑜誐 or 遊迦. The literal meaning is yoke, yoking, union, especially an ecstatic union of the individual soul with a divine being, or spirit, also of the individual soul with the universal soul.


Note: Yoga is sometimes written incorrectly as 瑜珈 in Chinese. Watch out for that.

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.
