"Heart" Japanese calligraphy





    "心" (shinn, or kokoro). It is translated as heart, maind, spirit, etc.

    This character is written by Kanzi, regular script.

    Etymology :  Hieroglyph
    This letter was created by the form of the heart.
    The ancient people express the state of the complicated internal organs well.


    The Nature surely took most away from us.
    However, we have already taken more than it away from Nature, too.

    The Japanese had lost the traditional HEART after World War II.
    We have converted all into money.
    It might be omen to receive the future severe reward.

    The time when should recur in the origin of our own might come to pick us up. 


   "The man knowing that he is satisfied is wealthy"  Laozi.
   Yes, it's wealthy HEART.
