The Ven. Gyomay M. Kubose (1905-2000) was a pioneer in the Americanization of Buddhism. He himself is valued as a “Buddhist Treasure” and his life as a work of art. In Buddhism, a teacher’s writing is considered an embodiment of the teacher himself. To have the teacher’s writing on the wall is considered to be in his presence.

 

The calligraphies offered are exact color reproductions of the Ven. Gyomay M. Kubose’s original art. Each calligraphy is mounted in a beautiful brocade-covered holder (4 x 19 inches) for wall display. Each calligraphy is accompanied by an explanatory sheet that designates how the Chinese characters are read in Japanese and their meaning.

 

Each calligraphy is not only a beautiful work of art but contains a meaningful teaching. This teaching, from the Ven. Gyomay M. Kubose’s book, The Center Within, also accompanies each calligraphy.

 

The two calligraphies being offered were favourites of the Ven. Gyomay M. Kubose. His accompanying teachings reflect his down-to-earth expression of the Dharma. The “Gyomay” signature on each calligraphy is the Ven. Kubose’s Dharma Name and is translated as “Bright Dawn.”
