Presence of Mind


12 1/4″ W x 43″ H Japanese Scroll
by Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase


Presence of Mind in Japanese is 平常心 which is read heijoushin

The Japanese word heijoushin meaning “Presence of Mind” is composed of the kanji (read hei) meaning “peaceful; even”, (read jou) meaning “normal, ordinary” and (read shin) meaning “mind, heart, spirit”. This is used especially in the martial arts, such as Kendo, to remind the student that one’s mind must remain calm and tranquil when under attack.
