Responding to numerous requests from the Chinese community, His Holiness Guru Choktrul will hold a calligraphy exhibition at Sunzen Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada. The exhibition, titled "Fantasy," warmly invites everyone to attend and offer their insights.
In 1987, His Holiness traveled to Taiwan to preside over the cremation ceremony of the high monk Jampal Lodoe Rinpoche and has since been residing in Taiwan for the past 36 years, occasionally traveling to mainland China and Europe to propagate Buddhist teachings and give aid to countless disciples who chanced upon him.
His Holiness has a wide range of interests, including calligraphy, painting, sculpture, tea tasting, and collecting unique stones, and has a particular fondness for Chinese calligraphy. In his youth, His Holiness was closely associated with Master Fang Xingren, a disciple of Yu Youren, a giant in the world of Chinese calligraphy.
Although His Holiness does not read Chinese, he greatly appreciates the "meaning" and "charm" of Chinese characters.
Years of meditation and realization of the primordial purity of mind in the Great Perfection have given His Holiness a deep understanding and unique perspective on the five qualities of calligraphy: "divine, sublime, easy, crafty, and fine." In addition, His Holiness incorporated the art of Tibetan calligraphy into his own unique style, resulting in an expression of free reining and powerful strokes, while not straying away from the blessings of compassion, wisdom and strength of the Buddhadharma. His Holiness's unparalleled strength of meditative equipoise allows his every brush stroke to be infused with his limitless aspirations. If one connects with His Holiness's work in serenity, it will be as though one can see the entire universe in a sesame seed, and three thousand realms in one stroke, a symphony of charm, aged elegance, dashingness, and a heart to heart connection in the midst of wayward grandeur.
