In China, calligraphy has been regarded as a kind of spiritual celebration. Because of illness, shaking hands and poor eyesight, Venerable Master Hsing Yun is not able to execute the characters in precise and separate strokes. He works on a calligraphy piece in one swift movement. What seemed like a limitation was turned into an opportunity as his method quickly became known as the one-stroke calligraphy style.
Venerable Master Hsing Yun is the founder of Fo Guang Shan (Buddha’s Light Mountain), one of the largest Buddhist orders with close to 300 branch temples worldwide. He was born in 1927 in Jiangsu, China and is the 48th patriarch of the Linji Chan School of Buddhism.
