Due to the overwhelming response from the public Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s One-Stroke Calligraphy exhibition which is organized by Fo Guang Shan Malaysia from 15th November till 1st December 2013 is extended until 15th December 2013 at Sutera Mall (East Wing), Level 4, Johor Bahru
About 100 pieces of calligraphy are on display and proceeds from these exhibition will be channeled to the Fo Guang Shan building fund in Johor Bahru.
Due to diabetes, Venerable Master Hsing Yun’s eye sight had deteriorated. In one of the explanatory notes in the exhibition, he said, “Since I cannot see, I can only estimate the spacing between characters. Once my brush is dipped in ink, I must complete it within one stroke. If I am unable to finish in one stroke, then I will not know where to start with the second stroke. Relying on my intuition, no matter how many characters from a phrase I need to write, I must accomplish it in one stoke to reach my goal. Thus it is called ‘One-Stroke Calligraphy'”.
The One-Stroke Calligraphy exhibition had been held at many places around the world such as Hong Kong, Philippines, Japan, Austria, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Taiwan, Malaysia & Singapore.
