One-stroke Calligraphy


"One-stroke Calligraphy" means t ha t every piece of calligraphy written by Venerable
Master Hsing Yun is done in one stroke, no discontinuation is allowed from beginning
to end. Venerable Master Hsing Yun faced 40 odd years of diabetes that led to a serious
eye condition, along with retinal detachment. With unclear vision in both eyes, Venerable
Master Hsing Yun can barely see, he is still able to let his heart guide his hands in
completing the extremely rare "One-stroke Calligraphy".
When Venerable Master Hsing Yun is writing, despite shaky hands, there is no discontinuation
from beginning to end. As any discontinuation will make it difficult to continue
to the next character and his vision does not allow him to distinguish the distance between
each character. For this reason, Venerable Master is forced to complete the
whole work in one stroke. Under such difficult circumstances, he still makes the effort to
keep his brush moving between ink and paper, saying, "look at my heart and not my writing”.
Over the past few years, the One-stroke Calligraphy has been exhibited in many countries
around the world in Australia, America, Europe, China, various Asian countries
and The United Nations International Centre in Vienna, Austria in November 2010.
Wherever it was held, the exhibition received overwhelming response and acclaim from
visitors, enthusiasts and collectors alike.
