Religious Devotion / Faith in God / Religious Faith

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

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

信仰 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.

信 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 / To Have Faith

China xìn lài
Japan shinrai
Trust / To Have Faith

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.

信賴 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.

Trust in God / Faith in God

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

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.

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

Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore, 1915

This is a philosophical poem/quote from Indian Poet and Philosopher, Rabindranath Tagore.

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."

Faithful / Honorable
Trustworthy / Fidelity / Loyalty

China xìn yì
Japan shingi
Faithful / Honorable / Trustworthy / Fidelity / Loyalty

信義 is a word that is often used to describe a person with an honest and loyal reputation. To put it simply, this applies to somebody you can trust (with your life).

In Chinese, this is often defined as good faith, honor, trust, and justice.
In Korean, this word means fidelity, truthfulness, or faithfulness.
In Japanese: faith, fidelity and loyalty. It's also a Japanese male given name when pronounced "Nobuyoshi."

Confidence / Faithful Heart

China xìn xīn
Japan shin jin
Confidence / Faithful Heart

信心 is a Chinese, Japanese, and Korean word that means confidence, faith, or belief in somebody or something.

The first character means faith, and the second can mean heart or soul. Therefore, you could say this means "faithful heart" or "faithful soul."

In Korean especially, this word has a religious connotation.

In old Japanese Buddhist context, this was a word for citta-prasāda (clear or pure heart-mind).
In modern Japan (when read by non-Buddhists), this word is usually understood as, "faith," "belief" or "devotion."

Extreme Faithfulness

Japan tei retsu
Extreme Faithfulness

貞烈 is the Japanese Kanji for, "Extreme Faithfulness."

The first Kanji means "firm adherence to one's principles," chastity (of a woman), chaste, etc.

The second Kanji means ardent, intense, fierce, stern, upright, to give one's life for a noble cause, exploits, achievements, virtuous, and in some contexts, heroic.

Now you get the idea why this refers to someone who is extremely faithful (to a cause, themselves, their religious beliefs, or their philosophy.

Integrity
Sincere Honest and Faithful

Japan sei jitsu
Integrity / Sincere Honest and Faithful

誠實 is the Japanese version of integrity which can also be defined as a combination of "sincere, honest and faithful."

Some may also define this as "loyal" or "loyalty." In some context, it can mean "genuine." Yes, all of this meaning in just one Japanese word!

Loyalty / Faithful / Devoted

Japan chuujitsu
Loyalty / Faithful / Devoted

忠實 is a Japanese way to write "Loyalty" - it also contains the ideas of being faithful, devoted, true, and obedient.

The second character is a modified form only used in the Japanese lexicon, however, Chinese speakers can easily guess the meaning.


This is also a virtue of the Samurai Warrior

Devout / Godly / Faithful

Japan shinjinbukai
Devout / Godly / Faithful

This Japanese word means deeply religious, devout, godly, and/or faithful.

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

U.S. Marines Slogan
China yǒng yuǎn zhōng chéng
Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

永遠忠誠 is the clearest and most natural way to translate "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" into Mandarin Chinese. 永遠忠誠 is specifically meant for U.S. Marines who often use the shortened term "Semper Fi."

The first two characters are a word that means always, forever, and/or eternally.
The last two characters are a word that means fidelity, loyal, and/or devoted.

I spent 10 years in the Marines, so it was a no-brainer to add this to our calligraphy database.

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

Japan tsune ni chuu sei wo
Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

常に忠誠を is "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" in Japanese. 常に忠誠を is specifically meant for U.S. Marines who often use the shortened term "Semper Fi."

The first two Kanji mean "always" or "constantly." The last three Kanji mean "faithful," "loyal," "devoted," and/or "diligent." It's most often read as "faithful."


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

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

Semper Fidelis / Always Faithful

常に忠実な is an alternate way to write "Semper Fidelis" or "Always Faithful" in Japanese.

Believe

China xiāng xìn
Believe

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"

Sincerity and Devotion

China zhì chéng
Japan shisei
Sincerity and Devotion

至誠 is the idea that you enter into something with the utmost sincerity and fidelity. Ideas such as devotion, honesty, and "one's true heart" are also contained in this word.

至誠 is a universal word as the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja are all identical.

Believe in Yourself

Japan jibun o shinjiru
Believe in Yourself

This 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.

Loyalty to Duty or Master

China zhōng
Japan chuu
Loyalty to Duty or Master

忠 is the simplest way to write the word loyalty in Chinese and Japanese.

A single character like this leaves the meaning open. But alone, a Chinese or Japanese person would think of loyalty to duty or loyalty to one's master (in ancient times). I suppose that it could be loyalty to your boss or company in this day in age.

忠 can also mean fidelity or faithfulness.

This can also be romanized as "chung."

Believe in Yourself

China xiāng xìn zì jǐ
Believe in Yourself

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

Dependable

China jiān yì kě kào
Dependable

The first two characters mean resolute with firm determination.
The second two characters mean reliable.

Together, this creates a 4-character expression that clearly means dependable.

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.
