Heaven Blesses the Diligent - Chinese Proverb Calligraphy Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This can be interpreted a few different ways:
God blesses those who work hard.
It is the way of Heaven to smile on the diligent.
God will reward those that are worthy.
Heaven blesses those who are diligent.

Whichever translation you like, a scroll like this on your wall may serve as a reminder to work hard because your diligence will pay off both in this life and the next.

Note: This can be pronounced in Korean as 천도수근, but it's not a commonly-used term.


About the calligrapher:

This was painted by a friend named Cao Zhang. He's a Buddhist calligrapher who currently lives in Lakeside, California with his wife, son, and daughter. His daughter and mine are schoolmates, and my wife can often be found at his special Buddhist meditation sessions.


More about the artwork:

This is painted on xuan paper (often incorrectly called "rice paper"). The raw artwork was then taken to my workshop in east Beijing where the master mounter built it into a handmade wall scroll.
