In the ancient art tradition of China and Japan, calligraphy and painting were methods for integrating body and mind. They were performed as a way to unite yin and yang—Earth and Heaven—within one’s very being.—from the Introduction
The Heart Sutra entered Japan in the 7th century CE as a treatise on enlightenment and a distillation of the doctrine of Emptiness. With its brevity and depth of meaning, the Heart Sutra is one of the most accessible interpretations of Buddha’s teachings. Here, this beloved wisdom source is captured in seal script, an ancient form of Chinese calligraphy that provides a remarkable study in the power and harmony of lines. A new English translation, a transliteration of the original Zen chant, and a graphic presentation of the sutra provide multiple perspectives. An introduction explains the history and spiritual significance of the Heart Sutra and Asian calligraphy, making this the perfect book for gift-giving, study, and reflection.

Belgian-born author and artist Nadja Van Ghelue has lived in the Catalan Countries for many years. Originally trained in Zen calligraphy, she has expanded her practice to other styles of Japanese calligraphy and sumie painting.
