"In the long and ancient tradition of calligraphy it is said that the spirit, or chi, of the calligrapher's heart runs through the ink and is imprinted indelibly on the canvas. It is also said that when you hang an authentic calligraphy in your home, its spirits emerge at night and enliven and purify the environment. What a wonder to have Dzongsar Khyentse Norbu's calligraphy in your space!"

-- Marlow Brooks, Naropa University
