The volume of “The Sutra of Infinite Meanings”, in Master Cheng Yen’s calligraphy, continues to convey the wisdom of the Dharma. The script is presented in the “dragon-scales” style, a form inherited from ancient Chinese bookbinding. The textured pages, when rolled out, resemble the skin of an auspicious dragon, and when rolled up into a scroll they are easily carried and transported. The exterior cover is bound with cloth to reveal qualities of pristineness and humility. The design embraces modern concepts, yet embeds the devout beliefs and sincere manners of the past. From its internal connotations to its exterior presentation, this collection of artwork effortlessly unfolds the cultural characteristics and spiritual energy encapsulated within.
