In this Buddha Art Journal artist-calligrapher Nadja Van Ghelue presents you with a collection of 108 Japanese Buddha kanji calligraphies for daily inspiration.
If you like Buddha Kanji Art, straightforward Buddha calligraphies, Japanese calligraphy and Zen aesthetics the Buddha Art Journal with 108 Unique Zen Buddha Calligraphies will inspire you.
While looking at a Buddha calligraphy you can pause your activity for a while, let your mind become calm and take time to reflect on what the Buddha means in your life, what you have understood of the buddha-nature, how your Dharma practice is progressing and what you can do to become more Buddha-like.
The Buddha calligraphies are there to stimulate, deepen, and expand your own reflections and writings. If you want to start at the beginning, that’s fine, but it is not imperative. You can also open any page and use the calligraphies in an intuitive way relevant to your spiritual mood at that very moment.
Examples from the Buddha Art Journal, Genuine Buddha Calligraphies
See some examples of my Buddha calligraphies. As you can see the calligraphic Buddhas show a great variety in style and expression, going from classic Japanese brushwork to intrepid and even minimalistic, painterly Buddha figures.
Next to each Buddha calligraphy, there is a blank page where you can write down your insights, meditation notes, and spiritual quotes, poetry, whatever you see fit to record.
