I started copying the art sutra from Nadja’s Book and web site few months ago during a retreat. One page at a time. I will continue my copying in Fall.
The seal’s script is very easy and very calming. The symmetry and simplicity of the characters make me feel “child like”. I wish I had a brush more appropriate for the characters’ size I choose.
The Kaisho style is still a challenge. But the characters repeat themselves and there is a sensuality, a flow that grow as I progressed through.
I liked looking at the others’s copies on Nadja’s website. It feels good to know that they are some other weird people out there who like to do calligraphy and copy esoteric heart sutras! Thanks for sharing
Here are my two versions of the heart sutra. Still a long way to go…
