Day 5

An ensō [The Zen Circle] Japanese word for circle

Our original spirit is free and infinite in scale. An ensō is thought to be a symbol of this. A true ensō dares us to take chances.

Painted with one stroke it is an expression of the moment, when the mind allows the body and spirit to create. Only a person who is mentally and spiritually complete can draw a true ensō.
