What is One-Stroke Calligraphy?

By Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum

Fo Guang Shan Buddha Museum

In celebration of the Buddha Museum’s five-year anniversary, the Buddha Museum held a collaborative exhibition "A Meeting of Masters" with the National Museum of History, displaying works of both Chang Dai-Chien and Venerable Master Hsing Yun. Venerable Master Hsing Yun, the founder of Fo Guang Shan, pushes to propagate the Dharma through culture. In recent years, the exhibition of Master Hsing Yun’s One-Stroke Calligraphy has received much attention and thus interpreted Master Hsing Yun’s writing style. 

Why did Venerable Master Hsing Yun name his calligraphy as "One-Stroke Calligraphy"?
Find out why in this video.
