Soul Mates

Japan tamashii no tomo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is one of a few ways to write "Soul Mates" in Japanese.

The first Kanji means soul, spirit, ghost, immortal soul, the mind, or conscious mind. From Sanskrit it's Vijñāna.

The middle character is a Japanese Hiragana connecting or possessive article that links the two ideas together.

The last Kanji means friends or friendship.

Soul Mates

China tiān shēng yí duì
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

It was tough to find the best way to say "soul mates" in Chinese. We settled on this old way to say "A couple selected by heaven."

The first two characters together mean "natural" or "innate." Separated, they mean "heaven" and "born." The last two characters mean "couple." So this can be translated as "A couple that is together by nature," or "A couple brought together by heaven's decree," with a slight stretch, you could say "A couple born together from heaven."

It's a struggle to find the best way to describe this idea in English but trust me, it is pretty cool and it is a great way to say "soulmates."

If you're in a happy relationship or marriage and think you have found your soul mate, this would be a wonderful wall scroll to hang in your home.

Soul Mates

China líng hún bàn lǚ
Japan reikon hanryo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

靈魂伴侶 is the literal translation of "Soul Mates."

This is kind of the western way to express "soul mates" but translated into Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
The first two characters mean "soul" or "spirit."
The second two characters mean "mate," "companion" or "partner."

Although not the most common title, these characters have good meaning and will be received well in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. It's a universal title!

Soul Mates

Japan reikon no nakama tachi
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is a Japanese-only title for soulmates.

The first half means "of the soul" or "spiritual."

The second half means "eminent mates" or "eminent partners."

Spiritual Soul Mates

China jīng shén bàn lǚ
Japan sei shin han ryo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is title means "Spiritual Soul Mates." The first two characters mean "spiritual" or "soul." The second two characters mean "mates," "companions" or "partners."

This is more about the spiritual connection between partners rather than a "fate-brought-us-together" kind of soul mates.

Both halves of this title have meaning in Japanese but I've not yet confirmed that this is a commonly used title in Japan.

Eternal Friendship / Friends Forever

China yǒng yuǎn de péng yǒu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is exactly what the title suggests. This 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."

Best Friends / Buddies

China qīn yǒu
Japan shin yuu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This is the Japanese way to say "best friend."

The first character can mean "relative" or sometimes "parents." The second character means "friend." Think about the close relationship that Japanese people have with their parents and relatives, and this starts to mean "close friends."

Some Japanese-English dictionaries also translate this as "bosom friend," "old friend," "intimate friend," "buddy," "crony" or "chum."

Note that in Chinese, this has the meaning of "relatives and friends." It's a good meaning in Chinese but it's not quite the same as "best friends."

Eternal Friendship
Friends Forever

Japan ei en no yuu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

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."

Fate / Chance Meeting

China yuán fèn
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

These two characters contain the ideas of fate. But this is specifically the fate or destiny that brings two people together.

This is like the chance meeting of two people that leads some time later to marriage.

This could also be the chance meeting of two business people, who become partners and build a huge and successful company.

Basically, this is an idea often associated with a fateful meeting leading to good fortune.

Some will define this word as, "The destiny brings you two together," or "Meant to be."


分 Note: The second character can also be written without the left radical, as shown to the right. If you have a preference, please let use know in the special instructions for your project. There is no difference in meaning or pronunciation, just two (alternate) ways to write the same character.

Best Friends / Closest Friend

China zhì yǒu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most," "extreme" or "best."
The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in China).

Can also be translated as "close friend" or "most intimate friend."

Best Friends

China zhì jiāo
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This an alternate way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "most," "extreme" or "best." The second character means "making friends" or "building friendship." There's sort of a suggestion with the second character that fate caused you to intersect in life and become friends (that character can mean intersection in some context).

This can also mean "most intimate friend," "very good friend of long standing," or "closest friend."

Most Sincere Friend / Honest Friend / Real Friend / Best Friend

China zhì yǒu
Mockup of Calligraphy Artwork

This one way to say best friend in Chinese.

The first character can mean "honest" or "most sincere." The second character means "friend" or "friends" (plural forms work differently in Chinese).

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.
