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).


China píng děng
Japan byou dou

In Chinese, this is the word used to describe equality among all humans.

Yes, this is the equality that means equality no matter of religion, whether you are rich or poor, gay or straight, black white or yellow.

In Japanese and Korean, this can be defined as equality, impartiality, evenness (basically the same as the Chinese meaning).

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.

Fair / Impartial

China gōng píng
Japan kouhei
Fair / Impartial

公平 means impartial, fairness, and justice in Chinese, old Korean, and Japanese.

This character, on your wall, should be used to remind yourself to be fair and just in all situations of life.

China shuǐ píng
Japan mizuhira

水平 means level, standard; horizontal, or horizontality.

水平 is also a surname in Japanese which romanizes as Midzuhira or Mizuhira.

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 / 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.


China píng kù

平庫 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the Indian name Pinku.

Restoration to Good Health

China píng fù
Japan byou fuku
Restoration to Good Health

This Chinese and Japanese title means "to be cured," "to be healed," "restoration to health," or "recovery from illness."

In some context, it can mean "to pacify" or "to calm down."

Safe and Sound

China píng ān
Japan heian
Safe and Sound

平安 means "safe and sound" in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Can also be translated as well-being, peace, tranquility, quietness, and calmness.

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

See Also:  Tranquility | Peace

Serenity / Tranquility

China píng jìng
Japan heisei
Serenity / Tranquility

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

It can also be translated as calm, serenity, tranquil, undisturbed or serene.

See Also:  Peace

Smooth and Steady

China píng wěn
Japan heion
Smooth and Steady

平穩 can also be translated as calmness, quietness, quietude and is used in Chinese and Korean.

The version shown here, would be considered the ancient Japanese form. The second character has been simplified in Japan (the same simplified form is used in mainland China, except for calligraphy). Please include a special instruction with your order if you want the simplified form of that second character. Both forms can be universally read.

Heijoshin / Presence of Mind

China píng cháng xīn
Japan hei jou shin
Heijoshin / Presence of Mind

平常心 is the title Heijoshin, as associated with Kendo and Aikido schools of Japanese martial arts.

平常心 is also a word in Japanese which can be translated as "one's self-possession" or "presence of mind."

In Chinese and Korean, this means "simplicity heart," "composure," "calmness," or a "sense of orderliness." In Chinese and Korean, this implies that you enjoy what you have, keep your heart in balance, and have no over-blown ambitions.


China píng kǎ sī

平卡斯 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Pinkas.

Bon Voyage

China yī lù píng ān
Japan ichiro heian
Bon Voyage

一路平安 is a wish for someone to have a pleasant journey. It's probably the closest way to translate "bon voyage" into Chinese.

The first two characters mean one road or one path. The second two characters mean "safe and sound" or "without mishap."

一路平安 means the same thing in Japanese but not the most common selection for a wall scroll.


China kè lǐ sī píng

克里斯平 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the Latin / Spanish name Crispín.

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."

Life in Balance / Balancing Life

The art of balancing your life
China píng héng rén shēng
Japan hei kou jin sei
Life in Balance / Balancing Life

This title suggests that you are actively trying to keep your life in balance. Think of this as being the action-verb of seeking or having a balanced life.

The first two characters mean balance, equilibrium or keeping things equal.

The last two characters mean "life." Literally "human life."

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

China zì rán píng héng
Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

自然平衡 means "nature balanced."

The first two characters mean nature (as in mother nature, or all biological life).
The second two characters mean balance or balanced.

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

China shēng tài píng héng
Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

This title is about the way and balance of nature.

The first two characters mean nature or the way of life.
The second two characters mean balance or balanced.

Note: We have two versions of this title on our website. 生態平衡 is the one we recommend, as it is a little more natural (no pun intended).

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.

Safe and Sound

China píng ān wú shì
Japan heian buji
Safe and Sound

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.

Universe in Balance / Balanced Universe

China yǔ zhòu píng héng
Japan u chuu hei kou
Universe in Balance / Balanced Universe

This proverb is simply Universe Balanced (we might say "Balanced Universe" in English).

The first two characters mean Universe. However, in some context, it can mean cosmic, cosmos, or outer space.
The second two characters mean balance or balanced (can also mean equilibrium).

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."

See Also:  Peace

World Peace

China shì jiè hé píng
World Peace

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

World Peace

Japan sekaiheiwa
World Peace

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

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 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."

See Also:  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.

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.

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.

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).

The More We Sweat in Training,
The Less We Bleed in Battle

China píng shí duō liú hàn zhàn shí shǎo liú xuè
The More We Sweat in Training, / The Less We Bleed in Battle

There is more than one way to translate this ancient Chinese military proverb. Here are a few interpretations:

A drop of sweat spent in a drill is a drop of blood saved in war.

More practice will give one a better chance of success in real situation.

The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in battle.

I heard this many times when I was a U.S. Marine but I had no idea at the time that it was actually an old Chinese proverb.

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.

Serenity Prayer

China shàng dì cì wǒ píng jìng qù jiē shòu wǒ suǒ bù néng gǎi biàn de wǒ yǒng qì qù gǎi biàn wǒ suǒ néng gǎi biàn de bìng wǒ zhì huì qù fēn biàn zhè liǎng zhě
Serenity Prayer

This is the serenity prayer, as used by many 12-step programs and support groups.

In Chinese, this says:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

All of our calligraphy wall scrolls are handmade.

When the calligrapher finishes creating your artwork, it is taken to my art mounting workshop in Beijing where a wall scroll is made by hand from a combination of silk, rice paper, and wood.
After we create your wall scroll, it takes at least two weeks for air mail delivery from Beijing to you.

Allow a few weeks for delivery. Rush service speeds it up by a week or two for $10!

When you select your calligraphy, you'll be taken to another page where you can choose various custom options.

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.
