Peace / Harmony

China
Japan wa
Peace / Harmony

和 is the simplest form of peace and harmony.

和 can also be translated as the peaceful ideas of gentle, mild, kind, and calm. With the more harmonious context, it can be translated as union, together with, on good terms with, or on friendly terms.

Most people would just translate this character as peace and/or harmony. This is a very popular character in Asian cultures - you can even call it the "peace symbol" of Asia. In fact, this peace and harmony character was seen repeatedly during the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing (a major theme of the games).


In old Chinese poems and literature, you might see this used as a kind of "and." As in two things summed together. As much as you could say, "the sun and moon," you could say "the sun in harmony with the moon."

Peace / Peaceful

China píng hé
Japan hei wa
Peace / Peaceful

平和 is the Japanese and Korean order of these characters used most often to express the idea of peace, tranquility and harmony.

It's just the reverse order of the Chinese. In this order in Chinese, it means takes the "mild" definition, rather than "peace." In Korean, the combination keeps the same meaning in either order.

The second character also means balance, so there is an element of harmony and balance along with peace.

Peaceful Chaos

China píng jìng de hùn luàn
Peaceful Chaos

平靜的混亂 is NOT a typical Chinese phrase. It was added to our calligraphy database at the request of a customer. These are two dynamically-opposed ideas but this is the way to express them together.

Peaceful Heart

China jìng xīn
Japan shizugokoro / seishin
Peaceful Heart

靜心 is how to write "peaceful heart" in Chinese.

The first character means peaceful, calm, and quiet. The second means heart but can also mean mind, soul, or spirit.

Because the word for heart / mind / soul is interchangeable in Chinese, this can also be translated as "a peaceful soul" or "a quiet mind."

I have also seen this translated as "placid temperament" or "spirit of serenity," especially from Japanese.


静While they once used the same first character form in Japan, they now use a slightly-simplified version in modern Japan (after WWII). This version is shown to the right, and can be selected for your wall scroll by clicking on that Kanji instead of the button above.

Peaceful Heart / Peace of Mind / Calm Mind

China ān xīn
Japan an shin
Peaceful Heart / Peace of Mind / Calm Mind

安心 is a nice word that encompasses great meanings within just two characters. This can be defined as relief, peace of mind, feeling at ease, to be relieved, set one's mind at rest. easiness. To put it another way, it's the idea of feeling a sense of security, safety, and confidence in your state of well-being.

Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm
Free From Worry

China ān níng
Japan an nei
Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm / Free From Worry

安寧 is a nice word that means peaceful, tranquil, calm, composed, "free from worry," "public peace," tranquility, good health, well-being, or welfare in Chinese and Korean.

Note: The definition in Japanese is not so broad but still means peaceful or "public peace."

Peaceful Warrior

China píng hé de wǔ shì
Peaceful Warrior

平和的武士 means "Peaceful Warrior" in Chinese. This does in fact sound like an oxymoron in Chinese - but many of you have asked for this special title.

Note, this is not the same thing as "warrior for peace."

Peaceful Warrior

Japan hei wa no bu shi
Peaceful Warrior

This can be read as "Peaceful Warrior" or "Warrior for Peace" in Japanese. This sounds like an oxymoron in Japanese, so it's a weird title. Expect Japanese people to be perplexed when they see it.

Character breakdown:
平和 (heiwa) peace; harmony.
の (no) possessive particle.
武士 (bushi) warrior; samurai; soldier.

Inner Peace

China nèi xīn píng jìng
Japan naishin heizyou
Inner Peace

This Chinese and Japanese phrase is a direct translation for the western idea of inner peace.

The first two characters contain the idea of "heart," "innermost being," or "deep in the/your inner mind."

The last two characters mean "tranquil" and "serene."

I have seen this phrase used as "inner peace" for art prints and even on the side of coffee cups. But I think the translation is too literal. It feels like a direct translation from English rather than a nicely composed Chinese or Japanese phrase. See my other entries for "inner peace."


See Also:  Serenity | Simplicity

Inner Peace / Silence / Serenity

China jìng
Japan shizu / sei
Inner Peace / Silence / Serenity

靜 is the simplest way to convey the meaning of inner peace and serenity.

靜 is often translated as "serenity." It can also be used to express the ideas of still, calm, serene, quiet, silent, stillness, not moving or tranquility.

In the old days, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean people might hang a wall scroll with this character in their reading room to bring about a sense of peace in the room.


静While they once used the same character form in Japan, they now use a slightly-simplified version in modern Japan (after WWII). This version is shown to the right, and can be selected for your wall scroll by clicking on that Kanji instead of the button above.

Achieve Inner Peace; Find Deep Understanding

China níng jìng ér zhì yuǎn
Achieve Inner Peace; Find Deep Understanding

Zhuge Liang

诸葛亮 Zhuge Liang

This is five characters from a longer ten-character proverb composed by Zhuge Liang about 1800 years ago.

The proverb means, "Your inner peace / tranquility / serenity will help you see or reach far (into the world)."

The last word means "far" but the deeper meaning is that you will surpass what you can currently see or understand. Perhaps even the idea of opening up vast knowledge and understanding of complex ideas.

Balance / Peace

China píng
Japan hira
Balance / Peace

平 is a single-character that means balance in Chinese but it's not too direct or too specific about what kind of balance. Chinese people often like calligraphy art that is a little vague or mysterious. In this way, you can decide what it means to you, and you'll be right.

平 is also part of a word that means peace in Chinese, Japanese and old Korean.

Some alternate translations of this single character include: balanced, peaceful, calm, equal, even, level, smooth or flat.

Note that in Japanese, this just means "level" or "flat" by itself (not the best choice for balance if your audience is Japanese).

Faith Love Peace

China xìn ài hé
Japan shin ai wa
Faith Love Peace

信愛和 is a word list that reads, "Faith Love Peace." 信愛和 is not a natural phrase in Chinese or Japanese, as it lacks a subject, verb, and object. But if this is what you want, here it is.

Inner Bliss and Peace from Meditation

China chán yuè
Inner Bliss and Peace from Meditation

This term transcends a few religions, including Taoism and Buddhism. This title refers to the inner bliss and peace that you can achieve from meditation. It can also be translated as "joy of the mystic trance" or simply "meditative bliss."

Amazing that such a complex idea can be expressed in just two Chinese characters. Note that the first character is Chan/Zen (Chinese/Japanese) which means "meditation" in both languages.

Live in Peace and Contentment

China ān jū lè yè
Japan an kyo raku gyou
Live in Peace and Contentment

安居樂業 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja proverb for, "living in peace and working happily," or "to live in peace and be content with one's occupation."

Patience Brings Peace of Mind

Japan nintai wa kokoro no heiwa o motarasu
Patience Brings Peace of Mind

This means, "patience brings peace of mind," in Japanese.


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

Patience Yields Peace of Mind

China néng rěn zì ān
Patience Yields Peace of Mind

This ancient Chinese proverb can be translated as, "Patience brings peace of mind," "One who has patience, finds peace," and a few other ways.

Peace and Good Health

China ān kāng
Peace and Good Health

This means just what it says. It's a word that expresses both the idea of being at peace and healthy at the same time.

Note: This is a bona-fide word in Chinese and Korean, and the characters will at least make sense in Japanese.

Peace and Love

China hé píng bó ài
Japan wahei hakuai
Peace and Love

和平博愛 is the Chinese and Japanese way to express "Peace and Love." These are two separate words, so the calligrapher will put a slight space between the first two characters which mean peace, and the last two which represent universal love. This space is not shown on the sample character images for this phrase.

A special note: Word lists may seem okay in English but feel strange in Chinese and Japanese. We don't offer too many of them but this one is often-requested, and feels okay in Chinese and Japanese, though a bit uncommon in Korean.

Peace of Mind

(five character version)
China nèi xīn de níng jìng
Peace of Mind

內心的寧靜 is the longer way to express the idea of "peace of mind" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean heart or "innermost being."
The middle character is a connecting modifier.
The last two characters mean peace, tranquility, or serenity.

Some may also translate this as "inner peace" but I like our other inner-peace options for that idea.

This kind of makes sense in Korean but will have an archaic read - even by those who can understand Korean Hanja.

Peace and Tranquility

China tài píng
Japan tai hei
Peace and Tranquility

太平 means "peace and tranquility" or "peace and security" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

The literal translation would be "very balanced" or "very peaceful."

The first character means very, much, too much, or extremely.
The second character means balanced, peaceful, calm, equal, even, level, or smooth.

Peace and Tranquility

Japan taihei
Peace and Tranquility

泰平 means peace and/or tranquility in Japanese and Korean (also understood but not as common in Chinese).

Peace of Mind

China hé píng
Japan wa hei
Peace of Mind

和平 is the Chinese order for these two characters which means peace but can also be translated as amicability, pacifically or mildness. 和平 is often translated as a simple way to say "peace of mind." This combination is used in Korean Hanja to mean "peace and harmony."

Alone, the first character means peace and harmony.
The second character means balance, when read by itself.

Note: 和平 are often seen in the opposite order in Japanese with the same meaning (You'll sometimes find them in this order in Japan, so either way is OK).

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.

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).

Reach Peace and Calm by Meditation

China ān chán
Reach Peace and Calm by Meditation

These two Chinese characters create a title that means to reach peace and calm through meditation. This is an excellent wall scroll for your relaxation or meditation room.

This is also a Buddhist-related term that encompasses the idea of entering into dhyana meditation.

Spiritual Peace / Enlightened Peace

Japan an shin ritsu mei
Spiritual Peace / Enlightened Peace

These Japanese Kanji can be translated as "religious enlightenment" or "spiritual peace gained through faith."

Other dictionaries define as, "spiritual peace and enlightenment" or "keeping an unperturbed mind through faith."

My Buddhist dictionary defines it as, "spiritual peace and realization of enlightenment."

Warrior for Peace

China hé píng wǔ shì
Warrior for Peace

和平武士 means "Warrior for Peace" (warrior who fights for peace) in Chinese.

Note, this is not the same thing as "peaceful warrior."

Worldwide Wish for Peace and Prosperity

China qǐ shèng shì kāi tài píng
Worldwide Wish for Peace and Prosperity

This means "To bring flourishing peace and security to the world (our current era)."

It's really a wish that a new door leading to peace and prosperity could be opened to mankind.

Character and word breakdown:
啟 to open; to start; to initiate; to enlighten or awaken.
盛世 a flourishing period; period of prosperity; a golden age.
開 to open; to start; to turn on.
太平 peace and security; peace and tranquility; peace; tranquility.
I don't really like to do breakdowns like this, as the words altogether create their own unique meaning (encompassed in the main title above). Please take that into consideration.

World Peace

Japan sekaiheiwa
World Peace

世界平和 is the Japanese title for "world peace" or "peace of the world."

World Peace

China shì jiè hé píng
World Peace

世界和平 is the Chinese title for "world peace."

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.

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.
