"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".

   The samsara is forever.
   The "禅 ZEN" teaching.

   The everything which caught the life becomes extinct by all means.

   Because I do "Birth and Vanish" is not pain.
   Though life is existence to "Birth and Vanish", pain occurs because I recognize it to be a eternal.


   「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。」
