Eternal / Eternity

China yǒng héng
Eternal / Eternity

永恆 is the Chinese word for eternity.
The first character means always, forever and perpetual. The second character holds the meaning of permanent. Together, they create a word that means eternal, eternally or infinite time.

Eternity / Forever

China yǒng
Japan ei
Eternity / Forever

永 is the simplest form of eternity or "always and forever." 永 can sometimes mean forever, always, perpetual, infinite, or "without end," depending on context.

Note: Not often seen as a single Kanji in Japanese. Best if your audience is Chinese.

From Here to Eternity

China cóng zhè lǐ dào yǒng héng
From Here to Eternity

This is the translation of the phrase, "From here to eternity" into Mandarin Chinese.

Eternity / Always and Forever

China yǒng yuǎn
Japan ei-en
Eternity / Always and Forever

永遠 is the Chinese, Korean and Japanese word for "forever."

If we take this word apart, the first character means "always," "forever" or "perpetual." While the second character means "far" or "distant."


See Also:  Immortality

Eternal Life / Everlasting Life
Immortality

China yǒng shēng
Japan eisei
Eternal Life / Everlasting Life / Immortality

These are the last two words from John 3:16 in the Chinese Union Bible.

Although not specifically Christian, this is the way to express ever-lasting life or eternal life in Chinese.

In Japanese, this can either mean eternal life or immortality.

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

永遠的朋友 is exactly what the title suggests. 永遠的朋友 means friends that are eternal or a friendship that will last forever - you will remain the best of friends as long as you live.

The first two characters mean forever, eternal, eternity, perpetuity, immortality, and/or permanence.

The middle character links the words (it's a possessive article).

The last two characters represent friendship, or simply "friends."

Eternal Love / Love Eternally

China ài yǒng héng
Eternal Love / Love Eternally

The first character here means "love"

The last two mean eternal, eternally, everlasting, and/or perpetual.

This is the shortest way to express the idea of "love eternally" in Chinese.


See Also:  Love Forever

Eternal Love

China yǒng héng de ài
Eternal Love

The first two characters mean eternal, eternally, everlasting, and/or perpetual.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love of the eternal kind."

The last character is "love."

This version is best if your audience is Chinese. We also have a Japanese version of this entry.

Eternal Life / Future Life

China lái shì
Japan rai-se
Eternal Life / Future Life

來世 can be used in many different ways. It is often used to express the next life (life in heaven or wherever your soul is bound for). So it does have a religious overtone. However, it can also be used to express your life in the future - perhaps during your present lifetime. It can also be translated as "the next world," "the next generation," "the time that is to come," "otherworld," or simply "posterity."


See Also:  Rebirth | Reincarnation | Immortality

Eternal Friendship
Friends Forever

Japan ei en no yuu
Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

The first two characters mean eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love, of the eternal kind."

The last character is "friend" or "Friendship."


See Also:  Best Friends

Eternal Love

Japan ei en no ai
Eternal Love

The first two characters mean eternal, eternity, perpetuity, forever, immortality, and permanence.

The third character is a possessive article which sort of makes this selection mean "Love, of the eternal kind."

The last character is "love."

Cultural note: Most of the time, it is taboo to use the word "love" in Japanese. For instance, a Japanese man will say, "I like you," rather than, "I love you," to his spouse/girlfriend. However, this entry for eternal love is acceptable because of the way it is composed.

This entry is only appropriate if your audience is Japanese. We also have a Chinese version of this phrase.

Eternal Peace

China yǒng píng
Japan eihei
Eternal Peace

永平 is a way to write "eternal peace" in Chinese and Japanese.

This may also refer to Yongping county in Dali Bai autonomous prefecture. 永平 is also a Japanese surname that romanizes as Nagahira.

Forever Young / Eternal Youth

Japan fu rou
Forever Young / Eternal Youth

This Japanese phrase means "perpetual youth" or "forever young." It contains the idea of never getting old. It literally means "never aging," or "not [getting] old."

Eternal Wheel of Life

China fǎ lún
Japan hourin / horin
Eternal Wheel of Life

法輪 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja title, "The Eternal Wheel of Life," in Buddhism.

Also known as the wheel of the law, or Buddha-truth which is able to crush all evil and all opposition. It is likened to Indra's wheel which rolls on from man to man, place to place, age to age.

Colloquially used in some sects to mean preaching or spreading Buddha-truth.

Eternal Energy / Eternal Matter

China bù lái bù qù
Japan furai fuko
Eternal Energy /  Eternal Matter

不來不去 is a Buddhist term, originally anāgamana-nirgama from Sanskrit.

This implies that things are neither coming into nor going out of existence.

This can also mean, "all things are eternal," or others will call this the Buddhist concept of the eternal conservation of energy.

This theory predates Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton.

Note: 不來不去 is not a well-known word for both Buddhists and non-Buddhists, so not all will recognize it.

Learning is Eternal

China xué wú zhǐ jìng
Learning is Eternal

This Chinese philosophy tells of how we continue to learn throughout our lives. This proverb can be translated in a few ways such as "Study has no end," "Knowledge is infinite," "No end to learning," "There's always something new to study," or "You live and learn."

The deeper meaning: Even when we finish school we are still students of the world gaining more knowledge from our surroundings with each passing day.

Eternal Happiness

China xìng fú yǒng héng
Eternal Happiness

幸福永恆 is a short way to say eternal happiness in Chinese.

Breaking down the parts:
幸福 means happiness, happy, blessed, blessedness, joy, and/or well-being.
永恆 means eternal, everlasting, and/or forever.

Another way to write this is 永恆的幸福. It reverses the word order and adds a possessive article. I prefer the shorter version, which is also a bit more natural in Chinese.

Eternal Beauty

China yǒng héng de měi
Eternal Beauty

永恆的美 is how to write "Eternal Beauty" in Chinese.

Learning is Eternal

Japan shougai gakushuu
Learning is Eternal

生涯學習 means, "Learning is Eternal" or "Lifelong Learning," in Japanese.

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.
