This calligraphy combines an enso (Zen) with the Seed-syllable A (Shingon). Shingon is an esoteric Buddhist sect that sees the universe as a manifestation of Dainichi, the Great Sun Buddha, symbolized by the magic letter A. Zen, on the other hand, sees the universe as a seamless unity, represented by an enso. This painting shows the unity of both perceptions.
