This extraordinary book brings together the traditional Japanese art of shod? and the wisdom of Zen philosophy. As a shod versed tea master? and other traditional arts of Japan, Shozo Sato first offers us a brief history of Japanese calligraphy and its close relationship with the teaching of Zen Buddhism through the ages. He then introduces us to the basic supplies and techniques required.
It uses the one-sentence sayings of Zen Buddhism known as zengo which may seem paradoxical but contain enigmatic nuggets of ancient wisdom and are an ideal subject for calligraphy. The book presents numerous works of shodô, explanations on the meaning of zengo and methodical instructions to calligraph these zengo, in one or more characters, according to different styles.
