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

This is an ancient Chinese idiom which means "tranquility yields transcendence".
This suggests pursuing a quiet life of profound study.
The first two characters mean tranquility. The last two characters mean "go far" which suggests achieving much in your life or expanding beyond normal limits. The direct translation would read something like, "[With] tranquility [in your life, you'll] go far".
Compare this to the English idiom: Still waters run deep.
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; tranquillity.
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.
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.
These two characters represent the idea of being calm or cool in Chinese, Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja.
My Korean dictionary further defines this as quiet, calm, tranquility, pacification.
From my Japanese dictionary: calm, quiet, tranquility, appeasement, pacification.
Note: This term is also used in Korean Hanja, but there is a slight deviation in the way they write the second character in Korean. Still, a Korean person who can read Hanja, will be able to read this word. We can write it in the Korean form if you wish (just let us know when you place your order). In Korean, this is the word you might use to tell someone to "calm down" or "take it easy".
This 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.
This 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.
This 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".
This is the Chinese and old Japanese word for calmness, stillness, and tranquility.
In Buddhist context, this can refer to the calmness of the heart, enlightenment, or the state of being calm and quiet - free from temptation and distress. Basically a state of earthly nirvāṇa.
Note: The second character is written just slightly differently in modern Japanese (静 instead of 靜). Expect a slight variation if you order this from the Japanese master calligrapher. The version shown here is considered the ancient Japanese and original Chinese form.
This is a Japanese word meaning, "quiet night" or "tranquil night". It implies late night, such as midnight.
This is also a female given name in Japanese, Seiya.
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.
This title is used in Taoism and Qi Gong to describe the state you can reach while sitting quietly in meditation. It contains the ideas of achieving a highly-tranquil and peaceful state. Some may describe this state as "sleeping while still awake".
If you have a relaxation or meditation room, this is the calming wall scroll that you would want hanging in that room.
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".
This single Chinese character can mean: neat; even; level with; identical; simultaneous; all together; to even something out; equal; uniform; complete; perfect; equalize; tranquillize; alike; at the same time; altogether.
This is used in regular Chinese language as well as Chinese Buddhism. It's also has the same meaning in old Korean Hanja.
Chinese Note: This can be Qi or Chi kingdom in China during the Spring and Autumn Period and the Period of the Warring States. It can also be the Chinese surname Qi or Chi.
Japanese Note: In Japanese, this Kanji is usually read as a male given name romanized as Hitoshi (there are other Hitoshi characters) or the Chinese kingdom of Qi / Chi. It's not often understood in Japanese with the same meaning described above. Thus, this character is best if your audience is Chinese.
This is a way to express the emotions that you might feel at midnight. Beyond peaceful, quiet or tranquil, there is an idea of being remote or lonesome, buried in the meaning of the first two characters.
This literally means, "Night Deep/Dark People Quiet/Tranquil".
In more natural English, some translate this as "late night, all is quiet", "tranquil midnight", or "in the dead of night" (implying the dead quiet of midnight).

4-character wall scroll.
As you can see, it is a great size to hang on your wall.
(We also offer custom wall scrolls in larger sizes)
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.
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.
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.

If you have not set up your computer to display Chinese, the characters in this table probably look like empty boxes or random text garbage.
This is why I spent hundreds of hours making images so that you could view the characters in the "tranquility" listings above.
If you want your Windows computer to be able to display Chinese characters you can either head to your Regional and Language options in your Win XP control panel, select the [Languages] tab and click on [Install files for East Asian Languages]. This task will ask for your Win XP CD to complete in most cases. If you don't have your Windows XP CD, or are running Windows 98, you can also download/run the simplified Chinese font package installer from Microsoft which works independently with Win 98, ME, 2000, and XP. It's a 2.5MB download, so if you are on dial up, start the download and go make a sandwich.
