Black Ensō / Japanese Zen Circle Enso is a circular brushstroke very common in Japanese calligraphy. It represents the state of mind at the moment of creation and symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the universe, and the void. Comparable to the Taoist sign of yin and yang.

‘Black Ensō / Japanese Zen Circle’ Art Print by Thoth-Adan

Ensō (円相) is a Japanese word meaning "circle" and a concept strongly associated with Zen. Ensō is one of the most common subjects of Japanese calligraphy even though it is a symbol and not a character. It symbolizes the Absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance, the Universe, and the void; it can also symbolize the Japanese aesthetic itself. As an "expression of the moment" it is often considered a form of minimalist expressionist art.

I wanted my first real post to be an essay on the rationality and irrationality of self-improvement within the context of Zen Buddhism.

Making the enso - the Zen circle that conveys everything, the whole world, complete, the ultimate Zen symbol of emptiness - is kind of a practice. Ensos are traditionally done in sumi ink, black on white. This one, by Kazuaki Tanahashi, used currant ink on black paper. It's a brilliant contemporary example of a traditional Zen form.

Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh teaches how to relax the bonds of anger, attachment, and delusion through mindfulness and kindness toward yourself.

Whatever we do, it is the mind that is most important. This is why the Buddhist teachings focus on perfecting the mind. The mind is king, and body and speech are servants which must do its bidding. It is the mind that conceives faith and the mind that conceives doubt; it is the mind that conceives love and the mind that conceives hatred. ~ Dilgo Rinpoche
