"Birth and Vanish" Japanese calligraphy



" " (shō-metsu). It is translated as Birth and Vanish.

This is a Buddhism term. Even the doctrine of the Zen is used.
It is related with
Impermanence of "Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra".



My hardship...
Because I mistake the limited existence for permanent, it occurs.

Even if do anything.  Even if do nothing. 
Will get there...



「諸行無常 是生滅法 生滅滅已 寂滅爲樂」 涅槃経

「諸行は無常であってこれは生滅の法であり、生滅の法は苦である。
 この生と滅とを滅しおわって、生なく滅なきを寂滅とす。寂滅は即ち涅槃、是れ楽なり。」
