It is thought in Japan that a tranquil, passive, mind is needed to accept whatever is given. It is a state of mind known as “munen” or “musō,” no-thought or no-reflection. This does not mean, however, merely to be without thoughts, ideas, feelings, etc. It means to let our natural faculties act in a consciousness free from thoughts, reflections, or affections of any kind. This state of mind is also known as egolessness (“muga” or non-atman), in which you cherish no egoistic thoughts, no consciousness of your own attainments. It is thought that, if we have this mind, we can attain spiritual enlightenment.
This is a work of calligraphy of “静寂 seijaku” (tranquility) by Ueda Gyokuhō. The lively lines are typical of him. It is a calligraphic work that gives the viewer peace of mind while attracting their eyes everlastingly.
