Protection Scroll

庇護 is not the most common word for a wall scroll but this is the word for protection in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

庇護 is the non-religious, non-superstitious form of protection.

庇護 can be translated as shelter, shield, defend, safeguard, take under one's wing, to put under protection. In certain context, it means to grant asylum or give refuge and sanctuary.

Blessings and Protection

Blessings and Protection Scroll

保佑 is the more religious and sometimes superstitious word for protection in Chinese. It's sort of a blessing of protection, and is often translated as "bless and protect", "blessing", or "to bless".

This would be used the protection or blessing that a deity (such as God) would bestow upon you. It is not religion-specific in the same way that a language itself cannot be specific to any religion.


祐Note: Sometimes the second character is written in the form shown to the right. Let us know if you have a preference when you place your order.

Blessings and Protection

shukufuku to hogo
Blessings and Protection Scroll

祝福と保護 means, "blessings and protection", in Japanese.

Divine Protection

jiā hù

Divine Protection Scroll

加護 is Japanese for "divine protection" or "the saving grace of God".

Please consider this blessing to be Japanese only. This can have the same meaning in the context of Buddhism in Chinese but it's also a nickname for "intensive care" at Chinese hospitals.

Note: My Japanese translator says this is not very commonly used in Japanese. I added this because a customer asked for it. There is not really a better Japanese phrase to express this idea - so this is it if you want it.

Under the Protection of the Dragon Saint

shén lóng bì hù
Under the Protection of the Dragon Saint Scroll

神龍庇護 is not the most common thing to say in Chinese but it is grammatically correct and a cool title.

The first character means "supernatural or saintly". The second is "dragon". The last two mean protection. You could also translate this as something like "Protected by the Dragon God" or more closely "Holy Dragon".

God Bless You / God Be With You

kami sa ma ga mamo ru you ni
God Bless You / God Be With You Scroll

神さまが守るように is about as close as you can get to, "God Bless You" in Japanese.

This literally means, "[May] God Protect [You]". It can also mean, "God is Always With You", as the word in this phrase that means "protect" can also mean to follow or be with. In fact, the Japanese dictionary entry for that word reads like this: to protect; to guard; to defend; to keep (i.e. a promise); to abide; to observe; to follow.


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

hù shēn dào
gou shin dou
Goshin-Do Scroll

護身道 is the title for the school of martial arts known as Goshin-Do.

The literal translation of these three characters is something like "self-protection way" or "protection of the body way".

To put this in context, the term 護身 is often used for charms or amulets that are meant to protect the wearer from harm.


Note: This phrase is pronounceable in Chinese, but it not commonly known in China.

go shin kai
Goshin-Kai Scroll

護身会 is the title for the Goshin-Kai school of Japanese martial arts.

護身 (Goshin) means self-protection, protection of the body.

会 (Kai) means meeting, assembly, society, association, or club.

Love and Protect

This can also be translated as escutcheon, protection, buckler, or aegis.

Divine Blessing

This can also mean: to bless; to protect; divine protection.

Also written as 庇祐 (variant second character).

Soldier of the Gods

shén bīng
shin pei
Soldier of the Gods Scroll

神兵 is a Japanese, Chinese, and Korean title that means "soldier dispatched by a god", or "soldier under the protection of the gods".

神兵 is used more in Japanese (especially in animation) than the other languages.

God Bless You / May God Protect You

shàng dì bǎo yòu
God Bless You / May God Protect You Scroll

上帝保佑 is a blessing exchanged between Chinese Christians.

The first two characters literally mean God (The God of Zion). The second two characters express the idea of giving protection. Another way to translate this is "May God protect you".

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.
