Calligraphy Done in Innocence

Yutang Lin

In the absence of predetermined concepts,
Calligraphy in roaming brush works magic.
Its wonder lies in the lack of regulations.
A flow of clouds or water comes out vivid.


Since I started to write some of my poems in calligraphy upon requests from disciples or Dharma friends, the works had been received with enthusiasm from many. I think the reason is that, my calligraphy was done as I felt like, without considerations to any set regulations. Consequently, even though they were done with brush roaming about, there is naturally a sense of a flow of clouds or water standing out on the paper.
