Peace / Peaceful

China píng hé
Japan hei wa
Peace / Peaceful Wall Scroll

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.

Peaceful Heart / Peace of Mind / Calm Mind

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

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.

Worldwide Wish for Peace and Prosperity

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

啟盛世開太平 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.

Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm
Free From Worry

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

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."

Warrior for Peace

China hé píng wǔ shì
Warrior for Peace Wall Scroll

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."

Peace and Tranquility

China tài píng
Japan tai hei
Peace and Tranquility Wall Scroll

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.

Peaceful Warrior

China píng hé de wǔ shì
Peaceful Warrior Wall Scroll

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."

Inner Peace / Silence / Serenity

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

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

This character 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.

Balance / Peace

China píng
Japan hira
Balance / Peace Wall Scroll

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.

This character 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).

Peaceful Warrior

Japan hei wa no bu shi
Peaceful Warrior Wall Scroll

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.

Peace / Harmony

China
Japan wa
Peace / Harmony Wall Scroll

The simplest form of peace and harmony.

This 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. 和 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."

Antiwar / Anti-War

China fǎn zhàn
Japan han sen
Antiwar / Anti-War Wall Scroll

反戰 means antiwar, as in what a pacifist believes in.

China doesn't tend to go to war very often, and Japan has embraced a pacifist ideology, so it's rare to need this word. However, this is the kind of word that war protesters would write on their signs.


戦There is a modern Japanese version of the second character which has become the standard in Japan after WWII. If you want your calligraphy written in the modern Japanese form, please click on the Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note: Most Japanese and all Chinese people will recognize the form shown in the upper left.

Tranquil / Tranquility / Serenity

China níng jìng
Tranquil / Tranquility / Serenity Wall Scroll

Safe and Sound

China píng ān
Japan heian
Safe and Sound Wall Scroll

This word means "safe and sound" in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Note: There is also a longer four-character version in our calligraphy database.


See Also:  Tranquility | Peace

Non-Violence

China fēi bào lì
Japan hibouryoku
Non-Violence Wall Scroll

非暴力 is fairly self-explanatory.

The first character means "not," "non-" or "un-"
The middle and last character together mean "violence," "use of force" or simply "violent."

Together, these three characters would normally be translated as "nonviolence." A great gift for your favorite peace-lover.


See Also:  Peace

Harmony / Balance

China hé xié
Japan wa kai
Harmony / Balance Wall Scroll

This word means harmonious, harmony, concordant, or balanced in Chinese and Japanese Kanji.

In Korean Hanja, it sometimes means reconciliation or compromise.

Serenity / Tranquility

Japan seion
Serenity / Tranquility Wall Scroll

靜穏 is a Japanese-specific way to express "serenity" or "tranquility."

Notes: The second Kanji is not a Chinese character - it was morphed or developed in Japan after Chinese characters were absorbed into the Japanese language during the 5th century.
The first character is slightly-simplified from the original Chinese form but still recognizable.


See Also:  Peace

Serenity / Tranquility

China píng jìng
Japan heisei
Serenity / Tranquility Wall Scroll

平靜 is one of several ways to express as "serenity" or "tranquility" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Patience / Perseverance / To Endure / Tolerant

China rěn nài
Japan nin tai
Patience / Perseverance / To Endure / Tolerant Wall Scroll

Patience is quiet hope and trust that things will turn out right. You wait without complaining. You are tolerant and accepting of difficulties and mistakes. You picture the end in the beginning and persevere to meet your goals.

These characters can also mean "to endure," "restrain oneself," "forbearance," and in some context it can mean "perseverance" or "endurance."

忍耐 is also used as a tenet of Taekwondo, Tang Soo Do, and other Korean martial arts where it's titled "Endurance" and romanized as "In Neh."


忍Note that when writing this as Kanji, Japanese will tend to write the first character in the form shown to the right. If you select our Japanese master calligrapher, please expect this Kanji form (yes, it's just one stroke that is slightly different in location, crossing another stroke in the Japanese Kanji form).

Calm / Tranquility

China ān
Japan an
Calm / Tranquility Wall Scroll

This character is used in a lot of compound words in the CJK world. Alone, this character has a broad span of possible meanings. These meanings include relaxed, quiet, rested, contented, calm, still, to pacify, peaceful, at peace, soothing or soothed.

This character and even the pronunciation was borrowed from Chinese and absorbed into both Japanese Kanji and Korean Hanja. In all these languages, this character is pronounced like "an."

Safe and Sound

China píng ān wú shì
Japan heian buji
Safe and Sound Wall Scroll

This proverb means "safe and sound without toil or trouble." It kind of means that all is well with a feeling of complete safety. The ideas contained in these characters include well-being, peace, tranquility, quietness, calmness, and non-problematic.

Good Health / Healthy / Vigor

Also suggests being at peace
China kāng
Japan kou
Good Health / Healthy / Vigor Wall Scroll

康 is a single character that means good health or vigor in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This character can also mean peaceful, at ease, or abundant in some contexts.

Please note that this is rarely seen alone in Japanese Kanji. In Japanese, it is used both for health-related compound words and to denote the kouhou through koushou eras of Japan.

In Korean, this can also be the family name "Kang" (caution: not the only family name romanized as Kang in Korean).

A Life of Serenity Yields Understanding

China dàn bó yǐ míng zhì, níng jìng ér zhì yuǎn
A Life of Serenity Yields Understanding Wall Scroll

淡泊以明志寧靜而致遠 is a kind of complex ten-character proverb composed by Zhuge Liang about 1800 years ago.

This Chinese proverb means "Leading a simple life will yield a clear mind, and having inner peace will help you see far (into the world)."

What I have translated as "simple life" means NOT being materialistic and NOT competing in the rat race.

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.

The whole phrase has a theme that suggests if you are NOT an aggressive cut-throat person who fights his way to the top no matter how many people he crushes on the way, and instead seek inner peace, you will have a happier existence and be more likely to understand the meaning of life.

Life in Harmony / Balanced Life

Harmonious Life
China hé xié shēng huó
Life in Harmony / Balanced Life Wall Scroll

This title suggests that you have, or want to get your life in balance.

The first two characters regard the idea of balance, harmony, and peace.

The second two characters mean "life." More specifically this refers to your livelihood, career, and the daily activities that comprise your life or living. Some would translate those two characters as "one's daily existence."


Note: We have a couple of titles for this idea. This version is more of a noun, thus "The Balanced Life" verses a verb form like "Balancing [Your] Life."

No Worries

China fàng xīn
Japan houshin
No Worries Wall Scroll

My Australian friends always say "No worries mate." It's caught on with me, though I drop the "mate" part since it confuses my fellow Americans.

If you would like to express the idea of "no worries" this is the best and most natural way to say it in Chinese.

The characters you see to the left can be translated as "put your mind at rest" or "to be at ease." You could literally translate "no worries" but it doesn't "flow" like this simple Chinese version.

For your info, the first character means to release, to free, to let go, to relax, or to rest. The second character means your heart or your mind.

Note that in Japanese and Korean, this holds the similar meaning of "peace of mind" but can also mean absentmindedness or carelessness depending on context.

Keep Calm in Face of Adversity

Japan shitsuitaizen
Keep Calm in Face of Adversity Wall Scroll

失意泰然 is a very old Japanese proverb. It suggests, "keeping calm and collected at times of disappointment," or "maintaining a serene state of mind when faced with adversity."

It's hard to relate individual character meanings into the overall meaning unless you also understand Japanese grammar. The word order is very different than English. That being said, here's the character meaning breakdown:
失 To miss, lose or fail.
意 Feelings, thoughts, meaning.
泰 Safe, peaceful.
然 Like that, in that way, however, although.

Using these definitions in English, we might say, "Although you may fail or lose, have a feeling of peace and calm."

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.
