Enso of Samsara

840.00

The enso is a circular, Japanese calligraphic brush stroke often used by monks as a form of meditation in action. The black and white forms in “Enso of Samsara" are coated in dirt, referencing the cyclic nature of all things, while echoing the cyclic, directional energy of the enso. Samsara is a cycle of suffering through life, death, and rebirth. This suffering can be alleviated through the wisdom found in the Buddhist 4 Noble Truths, indicated by the four glass globes along the outer perimeter of the piece. The 4 Noble Truths are: 1) there is suffering; 2) there is a source of the suffering; 3) the suffering may cease; 4) there is a path to this cessation.
