Calm / Cool

zhèn jìng
chin sei
Calm / Cool Scroll

鎮靜 represents 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."

Calm and Collected

chén zhuó
Calm and Collected Scroll

These two characters mean calm and collected, or simply not nervous.

Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm / Free From Worry

ān níng
an nei
Peaceful / Tranquil / Calm / Free From Worry Scroll

安寧 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".

Calm / Cool-Headed

lěng jìng
rei sei
Calm / Cool-Headed Scroll

冷靜 mean calm and cool-headed in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.

Other translations: calmness, composure, coolness, serenity, tranquility.

冷靜 is a good wall scroll for someone that wants to remind themselves to stay calm and level-headed.

Calm / Tranquility

ān
an
Calm / Tranquility Scroll

安 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.

安 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".

Open and Calm Mind

kyoshintankai
Open and Calm Mind Scroll

虛心坦懐 is a Japanese proverb that means, "with an open and calm mind", "with no preconceived notions", or "without reservations".

In some context it can mean frank or candid.

Open and Calm Mind

kyo shin tan kai
Open and Calm Mind Scroll

虚心坦懐 is a Japanese word that means with an open and calm mind.

If you want to remind yourself to approach each situation with no preconceptions, this is a good title for you. This can also refer to the ideas of being candid, frank, and straightforward.

Stillness / Quiet / Calm

jì jìng
sekisei / jakujou
Stillness / Quiet / Calm Scroll

寂靜 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.

Stability / Calm and Orderly / Equilibrium

ān dìng
an tei
Stability / Calm and Orderly / Equilibrium Scroll

安定 means: quiet; settled; maintain; calm and orderly; stability; equilibrium.

Keep Calm in Face of Adversity

shitsuitaizen
Keep Calm in Face of Adversity Scroll

失意泰然 is a very old Japanese proverb that suggests, "keeping calm and collected at times of disappointment", or "maintaining a serene state of mind when faced with adversity".

It's hard to relate individual character meanings into the overall meaning unless you also understand Japanese grammar. The word order is very different than English. That being said, here's the character meaning breakdown:
失 To miss, lose or fail.
意 Feelings, thoughts, meaning.
泰 Safe, peaceful.
然 Like that, in that way, however, although.

Using these definitions in English, we might say, "Although you may fail or lose, have a feeling of peace and calm".

Keep Calm, Be Not Impatient

shǎo ān wú zào
Keep Calm, Be Not Impatient Scroll

少安毋躁 is a short Chinese phrase that means keep calm, don't get excited, and don't be impatient or hot-tempered.

Reach Peace and Calm by Meditation

ān chán
an zen
Reach Peace and Calm by Meditation Scroll

These two Chinese characters create a title that means to reach peace and calm through meditation.

安禪 is an excellent wall scroll for your relaxation or meditation room.

安禪 is also a Buddhist-related term that encompasses the idea of entering into dhyana meditation.

安禪 is also used in Japanese, but in modern times, the second character has changed, so it's 安禅 now. If you want the modern Japanese version, just choose a Japanese calligrapher, and let me know when you place your order.

Peaceful Heart / Peace of Mind / Calm Mind

ān xīn
an shin
Peaceful Heart / Peace of Mind / Calm Mind Scroll

This can be defined as relief, peace of mind, feeling at ease, to be relieved, set one's mind at rest, easiness.

安心 is a nice word that encompasses great meanings within just two characters. Some of the other meanings include to pacify, to settle the mind, peace of mind, and it's also the idea of feeling a sense of security, safety, and confidence in your state of well-being.

This can be used by everyone, but some consider it to be a Buddhist concept (You'll find it in your Zen dictionary).

Silent / Solitary

jaku
Silent / Solitary Scroll

寂 means silent, solitary, quiet, calm, still, rest, or tranquil.

This also has a strong Buddhist association where it can mean "entering into Nirvana". In that context, this is sometimes used to refer to the passing of a Buddhist monk (he is silent, as he has entered Nirvana). For the living, this is about tranquility (especially of mind).

Some will also use this to mean "elegant simplicity".

From Sanskrit, this can represent praśama, vivikta, śānti, or nibbāna (nirvāṇa).

Peacefulness / Tranquility / Perfectly Quiet

jìng mì
seihitsu
Peacefulness / Tranquility / Perfectly Quiet Scroll

The first and second character both mean quiet. Together, they reinforce the meanings almost creating a word that means "double quiet" or "perfect quiet".

A good wall scroll for a library, reading room, or other quiet place.

píng jìng

Serenity / Tranquility Scroll

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

Purity of Mind

xīn chéng jìng
shin chou jou
Purity of Mind Scroll

心澄淨 is the Buddhist concept of the pure and calm mind. It is believed that once you achieve a meditative state of pure focused thought, the mind becomes clear and calm. Although, others will say this means that achieving a calm mind will allow you to reach pure thought.

From Sanskrit, this is known as citta-prasāda. The concept of citta-prasāda is sometimes defined as, "clear heart-mind", or "the single and definitive aspiration".

Restoration to Good Health

píng fù
byou fuku
Restoration to Good Health Scroll

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".

Presence of Mind

tài rán zì ruò
taizenjijaku
Presence of Mind Scroll

This Chinese and Japanese proverb/word means, "cool and collected", "showing no sign of nerves", "perfectly composed", "having presence of mind", "self-possessed", "imperturbable", and/or "calm and self-possessed".

Good Night

wǎn ān
Good Night Scroll

晚安 is how to write "good night" in Chinese.

This literally is a wish for an "evening of peace" or "night of calm".

晚安 is not a normal title for a calligraphy wall scroll. It might be appropriate for a hotel front desk if anything.

xī ān
Zion Scroll

錫安 is the Chinese title for Zion.

While 錫安 is supposed to sound like the western word Zion, it also has meaning.

錫 means to bestow or grant (but can mean tin in the context of chemistry).

安 means peace, calm, safety, and tranquility.

Happy Family

nago ya ka na ka tei
Happy Family Scroll

This means "happy family" or "harmonious family" in Japanese.

The first three Kanji create a word that means mild, calm, gentle, quiet, or harmonious. After that is a connecting article. The last two Kanji mean family, home, or household.


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

Inner Peace / Silence / Serenity

jìng
shizu / sei
Inner Peace / Silence / Serenity Scroll

靜 is the simplest way to convey the meaning of inner peace and serenity.

靜 is often translated as "serenity". It can also be used to express the ideas of still, calm, serene, quiet, silent, stillness, not moving or tranquility.

In the old days, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean people might hang a wall scroll with this character in their reading room to bring about a sense of peace in the room.


静While they once used the same character form in Japan, they now use a slightly-simplified version in modern Japan (after WWII). This version is shown to the right, and can be selected for your wall scroll by clicking on that Kanji instead of the button above.


See Also:  Peace

Peace and Tranquility

tài píng
tai hei
Peace and Tranquility Scroll

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 / Harmony

wa
Peace / Harmony Scroll

和 is the simplest form of peace and harmony.

和 can also be translated as the peaceful ideas of gentle, mild, kind, and calm. With the more harmonious context, it can be translated as union, together with, on good terms with, or on friendly terms.

Most people would just translate this character as peace and/or harmony. 和 is a very popular character in Asian cultures - you can even call it the "peace symbol" of Asia. In fact, this peace and harmony character was seen repeatedly during the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing (a major theme of the games).


In old Chinese poems and literature, you might see this used as a kind of "and." As in two things summed together. As much as you could say, "the sun and moon," you could say "the sun in harmony with the moon."


See Also:  Inner Peace | Patience | Simplicity

Peaceful Heart

jìng xīn
shizugokoro / seishin
Peaceful Heart Scroll

靜心 is how to write "peaceful heart" in Chinese.

The first character means peaceful, calm, and quiet. The second means heart but can also mean mind, soul, or spirit.

Because the word for heart / mind / soul is interchangeable in Chinese, this can also be translated as "a peaceful soul" or "a quiet mind".

I have also seen this translated as "placid temperament" or "spirit of serenity", especially from Japanese.


静While they once used the same first character form in Japan, they now use a slightly-simplified version in modern Japan (after WWII). This version is shown to the right, and can be selected for your wall scroll by clicking on that Kanji instead of the button above.

Balance / Peace

píng
hira
Balance / Peace Scroll

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).

Nichiren

rì lián
nichi ren
Nichiren Scroll

日蓮 is the title Nichiren.

This title refers to a Buddhist priest, who lived from 1222 to 1282. He is the founder of the Nichiren sect of Buddhism.
According to historical documents, the Nichiren sect was established in 1252. Adding the character for sect, this would be 日蓮宗 (Nichiren sect), which is also known as the 法華宗 or Lotus sect.

According to Soothill-Hodous...
Nichiren's chief tenets are the three great mysteries 三大祕法, representing the trikāya:
1. 本尊 or chief object of worship, being the great maṇḍala of the worlds of the ten directions, or universe, i.e. the body or nirmāṇakāya of Buddha.
2. 題目 the title of the Lotus Sutra 妙法蓮華經 Myo-ho-ren-ge-kyo, preceded by Namo, or, "Adoration to the scripture of the lotus of the wonderful law", for it is Buddha's spiritual body.
3. 戒壇 the altar of the law, which is also the title of the Lotus as above; the believer, wherever he is, dwells in the Pure-land of calm light 寂光淨土, the saṃbhogakāya.

Immovable Mind

fudoshin
fu dou shin
Immovable Mind Scroll

不動心 is one of the five spirits of the warrior (budo), and is often used as a Japanese martial arts tenet.

Under that context, places such as the Budo Dojo define it this way: An unshakable mind and an immovable spirit is the state of fudoshin. It is courage and stability displayed both mentally and physically. Rather than indicating rigidity and inflexibility, fudoshin describes a condition that is not easily upset by internal thoughts or external forces. It is capable of receiving a strong attack while retaining composure and balance. It receives and yields lightly, grounds to the earth, and reflects aggression back to the source.

Other translations of this title include imperturbability, steadfastness, keeping a cool head in an emergency, or keeping one's calm (during a fight).

The first two Kanji alone mean immobility, firmness, fixed, steadfastness, motionless, idle.

The last Kanji means heart, mind, soul, or essence.

Together, these three Kanji create a title that is defined as "immovable mind" within the context of Japanese martial arts. However, in Chinese it would mean "motionless heart" and in Korean Hanja, "wafting heart" or "floating heart".

A nice Chinese calligraphy wall scroll

single-character wall scroll.

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.
