Birth / Life

China shēng
Japan shou / iku
Birth / Life Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese word means "to be born" and "to give birth."

Also, it's often used to refer to life itself, and sometimes "to grow."

生 is used in a lot of compound words such as "yi sheng," which means "doctor" (literally "healer of life"), "sheng ri" which means "birthday" (literally "birth day") and "xue sheng" which means student (literally "studying life" or "learner [about] life"). Few Chinese people will think of the literal meaning when this use words like doctor and student - but it is interesting to note.

生 has the same root meaning in Korean Hanja and Japanese. However, in Japanese, there are many possible pronunciations, and this can be used to mean "raw" or "unprocessed" (as in draft beer). Therefore, not be the best if your audience is Japanese.

Doctor

China yī shēng
Doctor Vertical Wall Scroll

醫生 is the title used to refer to medical doctors or physicians in China.

Note: Sometimes this same term is used in Korean but not common.

Eternal Life / Everlasting Life
Immortality

China yǒng shēng
Japan eisei
Eternal Life / Everlasting Life / Immortality Vertical Wall Scroll

These are the last two words from John 3:16 in the Chinese Union Bible.

Although not specifically Christian, this is the way to express ever-lasting life or eternal life in Chinese.

In Japanese, this can either mean eternal life or immortality.

Kyousei / Kyōsei

Japan norio / kyousei
Kyousei / Kyōsei Vertical Wall Scroll

教生 is a Japanese name that can be romanized as Norio, Kyousei, or Atsuo.

These Kanji are sometimes an abbreviation for "student teacher."

Life Force

China shēng mìng
Japan seimei / inochi
Life Force Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese, Korean and Japanese word means "life force" or simply "life." The first character means "life" or "birth." The second means "life" or "fate." Together they create the meaning of "life force," though some will translate this as "existence" and sometimes "vitality."


See Also:  Vitality | Birth

Living / Live Life

China shēng huó
Japan sei katsu
Living / Live Life Vertical Wall Scroll

生活 means life, living, to live, or the state of being alive. It can also refer to your daily existence or livelihood. It can also be a suggestion to just "Live life."

生活 is also the term used in other titles such as "healthy living" or Lance Armstrong's "Livestrong" campaign (Chinese title for Livestrong only).

If you need a reminder that you are alive, and to take a breath, this might be the perfect wall scroll for you.

Sensei / Master / Teacher / Mister

China xiān shēng
Japan sen sei
Sensei / Master / Teacher / Mister Vertical Wall Scroll

If you've taken even a single karate class in your life, you know this term. 先生 is sensei, which is associated in the west with a master or instructor of karate, aikido, judo, and other Japanese martial arts.

In reality, this is a term of respect for almost any professional or skilled person (doctor, lawyer, teacher, etc). In some cases, it is used for musicians and artists who have achieved a certain level of fame, skill, or accomplishment.

It should be noted that this is also a courtesy title in Chinese but more like calling someone "mister" or "gentleman." It doesn't really have the "master" or "teacher" meaning in Chinese - see our Chinese "Master / Sifu / Shi Fu" entry if your audience is Chinese.

In Korean Hanja, this means teacher, instructor, schoolmaster, or schoolmistress.

This entry is more for educational purposes. 先生 is kind of a strange thing to put on a wall scroll. It's a title that is used more orally to show respect, rather than something written in calligraphy. If you feel that it is appropriate in your circumstances, we are very willing to create a piece of sensei Japanese calligraphy artwork for you.

New Life

China xīn shēng
Japan waka ki
New Life Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means "new life" or "new birth" in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

Depending on context, this word can also mean newborn, new student, rebirth, new birth, nascent.
In Japanese, this can be the given name Wakaki.


Note: This is not the most common word selection for a calligraphy wall scroll. But if you're a westerner, you can bend the rules a bit.

Re-Birth / Renaissance

China chóng shēng
Re-Birth / Renaissance Vertical Wall Scroll

重生 is the Chinese word for rebirth. This can be used literally or metaphorically. As a metaphor, you could use this to say something like "We are watching the rebirth of New Orleans after the disaster of Katrina."

重生 is sometimes translated as "renaissance."

Note: 重生 is not the Buddhist concept of reincarnation or re-birth.


See Also:  Reincarnation

Student

China xué shēng
Japan gakusei
Student Vertical Wall Scroll

學生 is how to write "student" in Chinese, pre-WWII Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

If you are a "student of life," this might be an interesting wall scroll to hang in your reading room.

The first character means "study" or "learning."
The second character means "life" or "birth." Don't read too much into that second character, unless you decide that this means "the birth of studies" or "the life of learning." Everyone in China, Japan, (and those who can read Hanja in Korea) will just read this word with the meaning of "student."

If you put the character for "little" in front of this word, it becomes "elementary school student." Prefixed with "middle" it becomes "middle school student." Prefixed with "big" it becomes "university student" (though when these two characters for student are seen alone, it often suggests "university student"). The term "high school student" is written differently.


学There is a very common simplified version of the first character for this word. You will see this form in modern Japan and mainland China, Singapore, and other places. If you want this simplified version, please click on the character shown to the right instead of the "select and customize" button above.

Survive

China shēng cún
Japan seizon
Survive Vertical Wall Scroll

生存 means "to survive." In some context, it can mean survival, to live, to exist or existence.

生存 is not a common selection for a wall scroll but a lot of people search for this term, so I added it to the database.

Addison

China ài dí shēng
Addison Vertical Wall Scroll

艾迪生 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Addison.

Emerson

China ài mò shēng
Emerson Vertical Wall Scroll

艾默生 is a common transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Emerson.

Ikebana

Japan ikebana
Ikebana Vertical Wall Scroll

生け花 is the Japanese term ikibana, meaning living or live flower arrangement.

The literal translation is simply, "living flowers."

Ikiru / To Live

Japan ikiru
Ikiru / To Live Vertical Wall Scroll

This Japanese title means, to live, to exist, to make a living, to subsist, to come to life, or to be enlivened.

生きる is also the title of a 1952 Japanese movie that uses the translated English title of, "To Live."

Note: This term, when used in the context of baseball, and some Japanese games such as "go" can mean "safe."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Live Love Die

China shēng ài sǐ
Japan sei ai shi
Live Love Die Vertical Wall Scroll

This came from a customer's request but it's not too bad. These three simple characters suggest that you are born, you learn to love, and then exit the world.

New Life

Japan shin sei katsu
New Life Vertical Wall Scroll

This literally means "new life" or "new livelihood" in Japanese Kanji.

新生活 is most appropriate if you are starting a new career, or otherwise are starting a new chapter in your life or a new beginning.


Note: This is not the most common word selection for a calligraphy wall scroll. But if you're a westerner, you can bend the rules a bit.

Survivor

Japan sei zon sha
Survivor Vertical Wall Scroll

生存者 is how survivor is written in Japanese. 生存者 is a strange selection for a wall scroll in Japanese culture, so take that into consideration before you choose this for your calligraphy artwork.

Twins

Japan souseiji
Twins Vertical Wall Scroll

This Japanese word means twins.

I nice calligraphy selection if you are a twin. I presume you'll want to buy a pair of these wall scrolls!?

Vitality

China shēng mìng lì
Japan seimeiryoku
Vitality Vertical Wall Scroll

生命力 can mean "vitality" or "libido." The first two characters mean "life" or "life force." The last character is a common word that means "strength." So together you get the meaning "life strength" which is the essence of vitality. Some will also translate this word as "good health."


See Also:  Life Force | Health

Way of Life / Art of Life

China shēng huó fǎ
Japan seikatsuhou
Way of Life / Art of Life Vertical Wall Scroll

生活法 is a Japanese and Chinese title meaning, "art of living" or "way of life."

This can also be translated a few other ways, such as, "rule of life" and "the act of living."

The "art" title kind of comes from the fact that the last character is the same as the book, "The Art of War." So when you write your book, this is the title for, "The Art of Life," in Chinese and Japanese.

Choose Life

China xuǎn zé shēng huó
Choose Life Vertical Wall Scroll

選擇生活 can mean to choose life instead of death (or suicide) or to choose to live life to the fullest.

I think of it as the key phrase used by Renton (Ewan McGregor) in the movie Trainspotting. While Chinese people will not think of Trainspotting when they see this phrase, for me, it will always be what comes near the end of this colorful rant:

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin can openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose life.

The Law of Creation and Destruction

China shì shēng miè fǎ
Japan zeshoumeppou
The Law of Creation and Destruction Vertical Wall Scroll

是生滅法 is a Buddhist term for, "the law of arising and ceasing," or, "the law of creation and destruction."

Embrace Life / Embrace Living

China yōng bào shēng huó
Embrace Life / Embrace Living Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese title means to embrace or to hug life, or the embrace what it is to live.

Enjoy Life

China xiǎng shòu shēng huó
Enjoy Life Vertical Wall Scroll

享受生活 is a Chinese proverb that means "Enjoy Life."

The first two characters mean "to enjoy" and the last two mean "life" or "living."

Learning is Eternal

Everyday Life

China rì cháng shēng huó
Japan nichi jou sei katsu
Everyday Life Vertical Wall Scroll

This simply means everyday life or regular life. You can also translate it as "Living day to day."

Happy Birthday

China shēng rì kuài lè
Happy Birthday Vertical Wall Scroll

生日快樂 is how to write "Happy Birthday" in Chinese. The first two characters mean "birthday," and the second two characters mean "happiness," or rather a wish for happiness.

Because a birthday only lasts one day per year, we strongly suggest that you find an appropriate and personal calligraphy gift that can be hung in the recipient's home year round.

Happy Birthday

Japan shuku tan jou bi
Happy Birthday Vertical Wall Scroll

祝誕生日 is the shortest way to write "Happy Birthday" in Japanese. The first Kanji means "wish" or "express good wishes," and the last three characters mean "birthday."

Because a birthday only lasts one day per year, we strongly suggest that you find an appropriate and personal calligraphy gift that can be hung in the recipient's home year round.

Healthy Living

China jiàn kāng shēng huó
Japan kenkou seikatsu
Healthy Living Vertical Wall Scroll

If you are into healthy living, this might be an excellent selection for a wall scroll to hang in your home.

The first two characters speak of health, vitality, vigor, and being of sound body. The second two characters mean living or life (daily existence).


See Also:  Strength | Vitality | Health

Home is where the heart is

China jiā yóu xīn shēng
Home is where the heart is Vertical Wall Scroll

This old Chinese proverb is roughly equal to the English idiom "Home is where the heart is." If you know Chinese, you may recognize the first character as home and the third as the heart.

Life in Harmony / Balanced Life

Harmonious Life
China hé xié shēng huó
Life in Harmony / Balanced Life Vertical 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."

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 Vertical Wall Scroll

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."

Life in Harmony / Balanced Life

Japan cho wa sei katsu
Life in Harmony / Balanced Life Vertical Wall Scroll

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

The first two Kanji mean harmonious or in harmony.

The second two Kanji mean "life." More specifically this refers to your livelihood, career, and the daily activities that comprise your life or living.

Life Is But A Dream

China rén shēng rú mèng
Life Is But A Dream Vertical Wall Scroll

人生如夢 is an old Chinese proverb that suggests, "life is but a dream."

This kind of follows the Buddhist idea that the world is a temporal place, where reality may not be as real as you think.

Life is Good / Life is Beautiful

China shēng huó měi hǎo
Life is Good / Life is Beautiful Vertical Wall Scroll

生活美好 means "life is good" in Chinese.

The first two characters mean "life" or "living."

The last two characters mean "good" or "beautiful."

Life is Good

China rén shēng liáng hǎo
Japan jin sei ryou kou
Life is Good Vertical Wall Scroll

人生良好 means "life is good" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean "life" (as in your or a human lifespan).

The last two characters mean "good."

This also makes sense in Chinese but it reads more like, "life is all right."

Journey of Life

Japan jinseikouro
Journey of Life Vertical Wall Scroll

If you believe that life is a journey, this is a nice Japanese title for you wall.

人生行路 means "journey of life" in Japanese Kanji. The actual word order is more like "life (人生) journey (行路)" as Japanese grammar is a bit different than English.

Note: The "journey" part can also be translated as "road," so this is also how to say, "the road of life."

Life of Love

China ài qíng shēng huó
Japan aijyou seikatsu
Life of Love Vertical Wall Scroll

愛情生活 is the Chinese proverb for "Loving Life." Some also translate this as "[your] Loving Life" or "Life full of Love."

愛情生活 is about being a loving person (to spouse and/or family) during your life. 愛情生活 is not the same as loving the state of being alive - not "love of living" but rather "being loving person during your life."


Note: Korean pronunciation is included above, though use of this proverb in Korean has not been verified.

This proverb can be understood in Japanese but it's primarily a Chinese proverb (it will "feel" Chinese to a Japanese person).

Live for What You Love

Japan jin sei ou ka
Live for What You Love Vertical Wall Scroll

人生謳歌 means, "live for what you love" in Japanese.

The first two characters mean "human life" or simply "living." The last two characters mean, "merit," "prosperity," or "what you enjoy." This phrase can suggest working or staying busy for your own goals (in your career).


See Also:  Prosperity

Live Laugh Love

China xiào ài shēng huó
Live Laugh Love Vertical Wall Scroll

In English, the word order shown in the title is the most natural or popular. In Chinese, the natural order is a little different:

The first character means laugh (sometimes means smile).

The second character means love.

The last two characters mean "live" as in "to be alive" or "pursue life."

Please note: 笑愛生活 is not a normal phrase, in that it does not have a subject, verb, and object. It is a word list. Word lists are not common in Asian languages/grammar (at least not as normal as they are in English). We only added this entry because so many people requested it.

We put the characters in the order shown above, as it almost makes a single word with the meaning, "A life of laughter and love." It's a made-up word but it sounds good in Chinese.


We removed the Japanese pronunciation guide from this entry, as the professional Japanese translator deemed it "near nonsense" from a Japanese perspective. Choose this only if your audience is Chinese and you want the fewest-possible characters to express this idea.

In Korean, this would be 소애생활 or "so ae saeng hwar" but I have not confirmed that this makes sense in Korean.

Live Without Regret

China shēng ér wú huǐ
Live Without Regret Vertical Wall Scroll

生而無悔 is how to say "live without regrets" in Mandarin Chinese.


Note: There is some debate about whether this makes sense in Japanese. It would be read, "nama ji mu ke," and be understood in Japanese. But, a Japanese person will probably think it's Chinese (not Japanese).

Live Strong

China jiān qiáng shēng huó
Live Strong Vertical Wall Scroll

While hard to translate directly, this is the best way to write "Live Strong" in Chinese. If you are a cancer survivor, or simply support Lance Armstrong's ideas, this is a nice selection for a wall scroll.

The first two characters mean strong or staunch. The last two mean living or life (daily existence). While the Chinese version is the reverse order of "Live Strong" it is the only way to write it in a natural form that is also grammatically correct.

Note that we are in no way affiliated or connected to Lance, nor his foundation. This translation is offered because of multiple requests from customers whose philosophies or ideas match those of the Live Strong idea.

Love Life

China rè ài shēng mìng
Love Life Vertical Wall Scroll

熱愛生命 is the Chinese phrase for "Love Life" or "Love of Life."

If you love your life, or want a reminder on your wall to keep you loving your life each day, this is the selection for you.

To clarify, this is different than "A life full of love," or "love while you live." With this phrase, you are loving the state of being alive.


Note: Korean pronunciation is included above, though use of this phrase in Korean has not been verified.

Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature

China shēng tài píng héng
Nature in Balance / Balanced Nature Vertical Wall Scroll

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).

Better to sacrifice your life than your principles

China shě shēng qǔ yì
Better to sacrifice your life than your principles Vertical Wall Scroll

捨生取義 is a Chinese proverb that comes from the philosopher Mencius.

It can be translated a few different ways:
To give up life for righteousness.
To choose honor over life
Better to sacrifice one's life than one's principles.

Principles of Life

China shēng huó xìn tiáo
Principles of Life Vertical Wall Scroll

This Chinese proverb means "principles of life" or "The personal obligations and rules that you live by."

For instance, if you were a vegetarian, the act of not eating meat fits into this category.
This could also be translated as "Way of living."

Return From Death’s Door

China jué chǔ féng shēng
Return From Death’s Door Vertical Wall Scroll

絕處逢生 is a Chinese proverb/idiom that talks of coming back from death's door, or an unexpected rescue from danger.

Figuratively, this can be to recover from a seemingly impossible situation, or to find a way out of a predicament.

If you have survived from a near-death experience, or serious illness, this might be an appropriate wall scroll for you.

Soul Mates

China tiān shēng yí duì
Soul Mates Vertical Wall Scroll

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.

Survival of the Fittest

China shì zhě shēng cún
Japan teki sha sei zon
Survival of the Fittest Vertical Wall Scroll

適者生存 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja for "survival of the fittest."

Thug Life

China bào tú shēng huó
Japan bou to sei katsu
Thug Life Vertical Wall Scroll

暴徒生活 is probably the best way to say "Thug Life" in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

It's a strange title to be sure, so expect native Asian people to be confused when they see your Thug Life calligraphy.

The first two characters mean bandit, thug, ruffian, insurgent, rioter, or mob.

The last two characters mean life, live, or living.

The Good Life / Beautiful Life

China měi hǎo de shēng huó
The Good Life / Beautiful Life Vertical Wall Scroll

In Chinese, this means "Beautiful Life," or "The Good Life."

Life Goes On

China shēng huó zài jì xù
Life Goes On Vertical Wall Scroll

No matter what happens, life goes on. For better or worse, life goes one. 生活在繼續 is the basic idea behind this modern Chinese proverb which literally says "Life goes on" in these five characters.


A further explanation of this phrase can now be found on our forum here: Life Goes On in Chinese, explained.

Life Goes On

Japan jin sei ha tsudu ku
Life Goes On Vertical Wall Scroll

人生は続く is a Japanese phrase that expresses, "Life Goes On."

The first two characters mean "life" (literally "human life").
The third character is a particle which connects the ideas in this phrase.
The last two characters mean "to continue," "to last," "to go on," "to occur again and again."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Life is Short

Japan jinsei ha mijikai
Life is Short Vertical Wall Scroll

人生は短い is "life is short" in Japanese.

The character breakdown:
人生 (jinsei) life (i.e. conception to death); human life, living, lifetime.
は (ha/wa) particle (means "is" in this case).
短い (mijikai) short.


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Live For The Day / Seize The Day

Japan ima wo i ki ru
Live For The Day / Seize The Day Vertical Wall Scroll

This Japanese phrase can be translated as "live for the day," "live for the moment," "seize the day," or "make the most of the present." You can think of this as the Japanese version of "Carpe Diem."


Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Live Strong

Japan tsuyoku ikiru
Live Strong Vertical Wall Scroll

強く生きる is, "Live Strong" in Japanese. If you are a cancer survivor, or simply support Lance Armstrong's ideas, this is a nice selection for a wall scroll.

This is Life

China zhè jiù shì shēng huó

If you are looking for the French, "C'est la vie," this is a close match.

Life with Love

Japan ai no a ru jin sei
Life with Love Vertical Wall Scroll

Note: Because this selection contains some special Japanese Hiragana characters, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Live in Prosperity

Live in Prosperity Vertical Wall Scroll

This means, "live in prosperity." It's kind of a suggestion to be prosperity the center of your world.

This is the way some people want to live (and you should always live for what you love). However, this phrase does not suggest a peaceful life - rather one that is always busy. It's not for everyone but it might be for you.

This is not a common phrase for Chinese Christians, but this is the best way to translate this idea from English to Mandarin Chinese.

We are not born with knowledge,
how does one achieve maturity?

China rén fēi shēng ér zhī zhī zhě shú néng wú huò
We are not born with knowledge, / how does one achieve maturity? Vertical Wall Scroll

This figuratively means, "Without a teacher, how can we learn/mature?"

This is a philosophic pondering by Han Yu, a Tang Dynasty essayist and philosopher (618-907 A.D.). This Chinese proverb can be translated as, "Knowledge is not innate to man, how can we overcome doubt?" or, "We are not born with knowledge, how does one achieve maturity?."

This infers that we need the guidance of a teacher if we wish to learn, mature, and become better.

The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering

China huò dé yǒng shēng de yào shí shì xiān yào huó dé jīng cǎi
The key to immortality is first living a life worth remembering Vertical Wall Scroll

This is a famous quote from Bruce Lee. However, when quoted, he was speaking in English. So this is a translation of his English quote into Chinese. Since Bruce spoke both Chinese and English, his quotes sometimes go both ways.

Galatians 5:25

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit
China wǒ men ruò shì kào shèng líng shēn jiù dàng kào shèng líng xíng shì
Galatians 5:25 Vertical Wall Scroll

我們若是靠聖靈得生就當靠聖靈行事 is the translation of Galatians 5:25 into Mandarin Chinese via the Chinese Union Bible.

KJV: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

NIV: Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

The annotation of this Chinese translation:
1.我们 wǒ men - we / us / ourselves
2.若是 ruò shì - if
3.靠 kào - depend upon / lean on / near / by / against / to support
4.圣灵 shèng líng - Holy Ghost
5.得 děi - to have to / must / ought to / degree or possibility

7.当 dàng - suitable / adequate / fitting / proper
8.靠 kào - depend upon / lean on / near / by / against / to support
9.圣灵 shèng líng - Holy Ghost
10.行事 xíng shì - how one does things / how one runs things (in this case, it suggests, "to walk in step with")

John 3:16 (first half)

China shén ài shì rén shèn zhì jiāng tā de dú shēng zǐ cì gè tā mén
John 3:16 (first half) Vertical Wall Scroll

神愛世人甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們 is the first half of John 3:16 in Chinese.

It reads roughly, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son."

This came directly from the Chinese Union Bible first printed in 1919.

Five Codes of Tang Soo Do

China guó jiā zhōng chéng fù mǔ xiào dào péng yǒu yǒu xìn shā shēng yǒu zé lín zhàn wú tuì
Five Codes of Tang Soo Do Vertical Wall Scroll

These are the five codes of Tang Soo Do.

I suggest you have this arranged in five columns when you get to the options page for your custom calligraphy wall scroll.

Here are my translations of each of the five codes:
國家忠誠 Be loyal to your country.
父母孝道 In regards to parents, behave in a filial way.
朋友有信 Be faithful in friendship.
殺生有擇 When fighting for life and death, make noble choices.
臨戰無退 No retreat in battle.

Note: "Tang Soo Do" is a romanization of 唐手道. It's 당수도 in Korean Hangul. It can also be romanized as "Tangsudo" or "Dangsudo."

Mountain Travels Poem by Dumu

China yuǎn shàng hán shān shí jìng xiá bái yún shēng chù yǒu rén jiā tíng chē zuò ài fēng lín wǎn shuàng yè hóng yú èr yuè huā
Mountain Travels Poem by Dumu Vertical Wall Scroll

This poem was written almost 1200 years ago during the Tang dynasty. It depicts traveling up a place known as Cold Mountain, where some hearty people have built their homes. The traveler is overwhelmed by the beauty of the turning leaves of the maple forest that surrounds him just as night overtakes the day, and darkness prevails. His heart implores him to stop, and take in all of the beauty around him.

First before you get to the full translation, I must tell you that Chinese poetry is a lot different than what we have in the west. Chinese words simply don't rhyme in the same way that English, or other western languages do. Chinese poetry depends on rhythm and a certain beat of repeated numbers of characters.

I have done my best to translate this poem keeping a certain feel of the original poet. But some of the original beauty of the poem in it's original Chinese will be lost in translation.

Far away on Cold Mountain, a stone path leads upwards.
Among white clouds peoples homes reside.
Stopping my carriage I must, as to admire the maple forest at nights fall.
In awe of autumn leaves showing more red than even flowers of early spring.

Hopefully, this poem will remind you to stop, and "take it all in" as you travel through life.
The poet's name is "Du Mu" in Chinese that is: 杜牧.
The title of the poem, "Mountain Travels" is: 山行
You can have the title, poet's name, and even Tang Dynasty written as an inscription on your custom wall scroll if you like.

More about the poet:

Dumu lived from 803-852 AD and was a leading Chinese poet during the later part of the Tang dynasty.
He was born in Chang'an, a city of central China and former capital of the ancient Chinese empire in 221-206 BC. In present day China, his birthplace is currently known as Xi'an, the home of the Terracotta Soldiers.

He was awarded his Jinshi degree (an exam administered by the emperor's court which leads to becoming an official of the court) at the age of 25, and went on to hold many official positions over the years. However, he never achieved a high rank, apparently because of some disputes between various factions, and his family's criticism of the government. His last post in the court was his appointment to the office of Secretariat Drafter.

During his life, he wrote scores of narrative poems, as well as a commentary on the Art of War and many letters of advice to high officials.

His poems were often very realistic, and often depicted every day life. He wrote poems about everything, from drinking beer in a tavern to weepy poems about lost love.

The thing that strikes you most is the fact even after 1200 years, not much has changed about the beauty of nature, toils and troubles of love and beer drinking.

Triple Truth of Japanese Buddhism

Japan ningensei o saisei suruno wa kanyou na kokoro shinsetsu na kotoba houshi to omoi yari no seishin
Triple Truth of Japanese Buddhism Vertical Wall Scroll

The Buddha ordered that all should know this triple truth...
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.

This is the English translation most commonly used for this Japanese Buddhist phrase. You might have seen this on a coffee cup or tee-shirt.

John 3:16

China shén ài shì rén shèn zhì jiāng tā de dú shēng zǐ cì gè tā mén jiào yí qiè xìn tā de bú zhì miè wáng fǎn dé yǒng shēng
John 3:16 Vertical Wall Scroll

神愛世人甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們叫一切信他的不至滅亡反得永生 is the full translation of John 3:16 into Chinese.

This is from the Chinese Union Bible which comes from a revised version of the King James. This Chinese Bible was originally translated and printed in 1919 (several revisions since then).

Because of the origin being the KJV, I'll say that in English, this would be, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life."

As with any translation, there are interesting cultural and linguistic issues. For instance, the word used for "world" in Chinese can also mean "common people." So you could say that it means "For God so loved the common people..."
This does not take away from the text, as it will be understood with the same meaning and connotation.

There is no direct Greek to Chinese translation in print (that I know of), so this is the best available. Of course, you can ask any Greek person of faith, and they will claim that a bit is lost from the original Greek of the New Testament to any of the English versions of the Bible in print.

Heart Sutra

Heart Sutra Vertical Wall Scroll

This is the short version of the Heart Sutra as translated by Xuanzang. It is often cited as the best-known and most popular of all Buddhist scriptures.


Notes: There are too many characters for this to be done by the economy calligrapher. You must choose a Master Calligrapher.

With this many characters, and the fact that one tiny mistake wipes out hours of work, keep in mind that writing the Heart Sutra is usually a full day of work for a calligrapher. This work and personal energy should be cherished and respected. In other words, the calligrapher is not charging enough money for the value that you are getting here.

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.
