Happiness

China xìng fú
Japan koufuku
Happiness

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

Joyfulness / Happiness

China kuài lè
Japan kai raku
Joyfulness / Happiness

Joyfulness is an inner sense of peace and happiness. You appreciate the gifts each day brings. Without joyfulness, when the fun stops, our happiness stops. Joy can carry us through the hard times even when we are feeling very sad.

快樂 can also mean pleasure, enjoyment, delight, cheerful, or merry. In some ways, this is the essence that makes someone to be perceived as a charming person.

Happiness / Joyful / Joy

China
Japan ki / yorokobi
Happiness / Joyful / Joy

喜 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and Korean Hanja for the kind of happiness known in the west as "joy."

喜 can also be translated as rejoice, enjoyment, delighted, pleased, or "take pleasure in." Sometimes it can mean, "to be fond of" (in a certain context).

If you write two of these happiness/joy characters side by side, you create another character known in English as "double happiness," which is a symbol associated with weddings and a happy marriage.


There is another version of this character that you will find on our website with an additional radical on the left side (exactly same meaning, just an alternate form). The version of happiness shown here is the commonly written form in China, Japan and South Korea (banned in North Korea).

Double Happiness

(Happy wedding and marriage)
China
Double Happiness

囍 is a common gift for Chinese couples getting married or newly married couples.

As we say in the west, "Two heads are better than one" Well, in the east, two "happinesses" are certainly better than one.

Some will suggest this is a symbol of two happinesses coming together. Others see it as a multiplication of happiness because of the union or marriage.

囍 is not really a character that is pronounced very often - it's almost exclusively used in written form. However, if pressed, most Chinese people will pronounce this "shuang xi" (double happy) although literally there are two "xi" characters combined in this calligraphy (but nobody will say "xi xi").

Double Happiness Portrait Red If you select this character, I strongly suggest the festive bright red paper for your calligraphy. Part of my suggestion comes from the fact that red is a good luck color in China, and this will add to the sentiment that you wish to convey with this scroll to the happy couple.

Pursuit of Happiness

Japan koufuku o motome te
Pursuit of Happiness

幸福を求めて 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


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

Love and Happiness

China xìng fú yǔ ài
Love and Happiness

幸福與愛 is "happiness and love" in Chinese.

There is a suggestion of "good fortune" in the version of happiness used here.

School of Happiness

China xìng fú xué xiào
School of Happiness

幸福學校 means "School of Happiness" or "Happiness School" in Chinese.

幸福 means happiness, happy, blessed, blessedness, joy, and/or well-being.

學校 means school or college.

Pursuit of Happiness

China zhuī xún xìng fú
Pursuit of Happiness

追尋幸福 is the best way to translate the English phrase "pursuit of happiness" into Chinese.

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

The last two mean happiness, happy, or blessed.

Prosperity and Happiness

China fù lè
Japan furaku
Prosperity and Happiness

富樂 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for a title meaning prosperity and happiness.

If you have a desire to live in prosperity and happiness, this is for you.

Note: This title is often used in a Buddhist context.

A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

China xìng fú chéng gōng de yì shēng
A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

This means, "A life of happiness and prosperity" or "A life of happiness and success." It's a great and very positive and inspirational wall scroll selection.


See Also:  Prosperity

A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

Japan kou fuku to ha nei no jin sei
A Life of Happiness and Prosperity

This Japanese proverb means, "A life of happiness and prosperity" or "A life of happiness and success."


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


See Also:  Prosperity

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.

Happiness / Joy

China
Happiness / Joy

禧 is the type of happiness known in the west as "joy." The radical on the right side of this character is often seen alone (with the same meaning - and we do recommend that version because it's more universal).

School of Happiness

Japan koufuku no gakkou
School of Happiness

幸福の学校 means "School of Happiness" in Japanese.

This is not a common phrase in Japanese, but it will be understood.

Peace, Love, Happiness

Japan heiwa ai koufuku
Peace, Love, Happiness

This means "peace, love, happiness" in Japanese.


This is a word list, which is not the most natural kind of composition in Japanese (usually there is a subject, object, and verb - or a single word).

Happiness / Contentment

China mǎn zú
Japan man zoku
Happiness / Contentment

滿足 / 満足 is the kind of happiness that involves being satisfied and content.

This can also suggest the actions of "to satisfy," "to meet the needs of."

Other single-word definitions include: satisfaction; contentment; sufficient; enough; adequate; full; complete.


満In Japanese, the Kanji for this word is an alternate Chinese form. You can see and select this version at the right (recommended only if your audience is specifically Japanese).


See Also:  Satisfaction | Contentment | Pleasure | Well-Being

Peace, Love, Happiness

China hé píng bó ài xìng fú
Peace, Love, Happiness

This is a word-list that means, "peace, love, happiness," in Chinese.


Word lists like this are not commonly-seen in China. Phrases with subject, verb, and object, or just single words are more natural for calligraphy artwork.

Happiness / Contentment

Japan ko fuku
Happiness / Contentment

鼓腹 means happiness and contentment in Japanese Kanji.

The first Kanji represents your internal beat or drum.
The second Kanji represents your mind and body.
Together, it suggests that your internal rhythm or beat is regular, soothing, and at proper tempo.


See Also:  Satisfaction | Pleasure | Well-Being

Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

China xìng
Japan saki / sachi / rei / rē
Happiness / Fortune / Lucky

This can mean happiness, good fortune, good luck, and in the old days, good harvest or bounty.

Note: From Japanese, this character is sometimes romanized as "sachi," and is often pronounced "kou" or sometimes "rei" when used in compound words with other Kanji.

Seven Rules of Happiness

Japan kou fuku no nana ka jou
Seven Rules of Happiness

This is the title for the 7 rules of happiness in Japanese. The rules themselves take up a lot of space:

1. 成功や栄誉や勝ち負けを目的に、ことを行ってはいけない。
2. しないではいられないことをし続けなさい。
3. 他人との比較ではない、あくまで自分の楽しさを追及すべし。
4. 好きの力を信じる。
5. 才能と収入は別、努力は人を裏切ると心得よ。
6. 怠け者になりなさい。
7. 目に見えない世界を信じる。

...so this title is probably all you need.


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

Double Happiness Guest Book

Customize a special Asian guest book for your wedding
China
Double Happiness Guest Book

囍 is where to start customizing a "Double Happiness Guest Book Wall Scroll."

The paper panel can be whatever you choose from 68cm to 135cm. If you don't mention what paper length you want in the special instructions tab (on the next page), we'll make it about 100cm (which with silk panels will yield a wall scroll about 155cm).

Most customers pick red paper with gold flakes, and white or ivory silk. But, you can do any color combination that you want.

Doing good is the greatest source of happiness

China wéi shàn zuì lè
Doing good is the greatest source of happiness

為善最樂 can be translated as, "Doing good is the greatest source of happiness," or "doing good deeds brings the greatest joy".

The origin is not known, sometimes used in the context of Buddhism. However, this Chinese proverb or philosophy is a fairly mainstream idea of benevolence.

Better to be Happy than Rich

China ān pín lè dào
Better to be Happy than Rich

Even if you are poor, you should still feel satisfied in your life...

...Satisfaction, happiness, and the meaning of your life come from within yourself and not from money or riches of the world.

In Chinese, there are a lot of four-character proverbs which express some very old philosophies.
Though there are only four characters on this scroll, in Chinese the meanings often surpass the dictionary definition of each character.

In this case, you should not set your expectations too high for the amount to money or riches you wish to have. One who sets their expectations too high is almost always disappointed. Instead, you should cherish what you have, and seek to improve yourself from within, and not measure your personal worth by the size of your bank account.

Happy

China xīn
Japan kin
Happy

欣 is the type of happiness that you feel on the inside. It is the feeling of being released and delighted as well as being in a state of contentment. 欣 is a more internal happiness that perhaps only shows by the smile on your face. It can also be translated as "to take pleasure in" or "to rejoice."

Note: 欣 is often used in compound words - especially in Korean Hanja.
As Japanese Kanji, this is so rare, that most Japanese people are not aware of its existence.

Joyful

China huān
Japan kan
Joyful

歡 means joyous, happy, delight, and pleased.

歡 represents an external happiness that may have you clapping and cheering.


Please note: The other happiness/joyful which looks like "喜" is more popular.

歡 is the ancient/old version in China and Japan. After WWII in Japan, they started using 歓. Just let us know if you want this modern version instead of the ancient one.

Be Happy

Japan Shiawa se de a ru
Be Happy

幸せである is a way to express the idea, "be happy" in Japanese.

Japanese grammar is far different than English, so the word order is kind of the opposite of English. If you translated directly, you'd have something like, "Happiness hence forth," or "Happiness hereafter." Basically, the idea is to be happy from this moment on.


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

Happy Family

China hé xié zhī jiā
Happy Family

和諧之家 means, "harmonious family" or "happy family" in Chinese.

The first two characters relay the idea of happiness and harmony.
The third character is a connecting or possessive article (connects harmony/happiness to family).
The last character means family but can also mean home or household.

Happy Birthday

China shēng rì kuài lè
Happy Birthday

生日快樂 is how to write "Happy Birthday" in Chinese. The first two characters mean "birthday," and the second two characters mean "happiness," or rather a wish for happiness.

Because a birthday only lasts one day per year, we strongly suggest that you find an appropriate and personal calligraphy gift that can be hung in the recipient's home year round.

Happy Laughter

China huān xiào
Happy Laughter

歡笑 translates as "happy laughter."

The first character means happy or happiness.
The second character means to laugh, laughter or smile.

Serendipity / Happy Coincidence

Japan shiawa se na guu zen
Serendipity / Happy Coincidence

幸せな偶然 is one of many ways to express serendipity in Japanese.

The first two characters mean happiness, good fortune, luck, or blessing.

In the middle is a Japanese Hiragana character that serves to connect these words/ideas together.

The last two Kanji mean incidentally, by chance, randomly, unexpectedly, suddenly, accident, fortuity, or by coincidence.


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

Optimism / Happy With Your Fate

China lè tiān
Japan raku ten
Optimism / Happy With Your Fate

樂天 is about being optimistic and also making the best of whatever life throws at you.

This word is hard to define. One dictionary defines this as, "acceptance of fate and happy about it." There is one English word equivalent which is sanguinity or sanguinary.

You can also say that this means, "Be happy with whatever Heaven provides," or "Find happiness in whatever fate Heaven bestows upon you." 樂天 suggests being an optimist in life.

Note: This is sometimes a given name in China.


楽 Please note that Japanese tend to write the first character in a slightly-different form (as seen to the right). Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

Happy / Laughter / Cheerful Bliss

China
Japan raku
Happy / Laughter / Cheerful Bliss

樂 / 楽 is a single-character form of happiness or bliss that holds the ideas of laughing and having a good time. It can also be translated as happy, glad, enjoyable, fun, and sometimes, music.

This a really good character if your audience is Chinese.

樂 / 楽 is not a word seen alone very often in Korean.

楽In Japanese, this character is written like the image shown to the right. If you order this from the Japanese master calligrapher, it will look like this instead of the character shown above.
Note: In Japanese, this has a meaning of comfort, ease, and enjoyment.

100 Years of Happy Marriage

China bǎi nián hǎo hé
100 Years of Happy Marriage

百年好合 is a wish or greeting, often heard at Chinese weddings, for a couple to have 100 good years together.

Some will translate this more naturally into English as: "May you live a long and happy life together."

The character breakdown:
百 = 100
年 = Years
好 = Good (Happy)
合 = Together

Happy New Year

China xīn nián kuài lè
Happy New Year

If you want to wish someone a happy new year this is the way. You can hang this up during Western New Years (Dec 31st - Jan 1st) and keep it up until after Chinese New Years which happens in either January or February of each year (it changes from year to year because China uses a lunar calendar).

Happy Birthday

Japan shuku tan jou bi
Happy Birthday

祝誕生日 is the shortest way to write "Happy Birthday" in Japanese. The first Kanji means "wish" or "express good wishes," and the last three characters mean "birthday."

Because a birthday only lasts one day per year, we strongly suggest that you find an appropriate and personal calligraphy gift that can be hung in the recipient's home year round.

Happy Buddha

Buddha of Joyful Light
China huān xǐ guāng fó
Japan kan gi kou butsu
Happy Buddha

This title is Buddha of Joyful Light. This is Amitābha from Sanskrit but pronounced very different in Chinese and Japanese.

Happy Family

Japan nago ya ka na ka tei
Happy Family

This means "happy family" or "harmonious family" in Japanese. The first three Kanji create a word that means mild, calm, gentle, quiet, or harmonious. After that is a connecting article. The last two Kanji mean family, home, or household.


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

Happy Birthday

Japan tan jou bi o me de tou
Happy Birthday

This is a verbose way to write "Happy Birthday" in Japanese. The first part says "birthday" and the last 5 Kanji mean "congratulations."


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

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.
