“Dancing with Brush Marks” A lecture and demonstration – I will be giving a presentation on ink painting and calligraphy at Bennington College, East Academic Center 1, Vermont, 10/9 at 7 pm, open to public. Feel free to join me!——————————-
Dancing with Brush Marks
with Yeachin Tsai
An evening of Sumi ink and brush strokes – an introduction to Traditional Chinese Calligraphy and Brush Painting by Yeachin Tsai. Mrs. Tsai will demonstrate the principles of these ancient disciplines and discuss how the practice can bring us vividly into the present moment. The evening will include a demonstration and contemporary artwork presentation.
Yeachin was born in Taipei, Taiwan and moved to New York City in 1993. She received MFA degree at CUNY, Brooklyn College. Yeachin has practiced calligraphy and brush painting for over 40 years, having learned from traditional Chinese Masters. Since moving to NYC, her work evolved into an unique style of “New Ink”, a colorful expression that retains its roots in Chinese painting and embraces the explorative impulse of Western abstraction. She currently lives and works in the Capital District as an artist. Visit Yeachin’s website at http://www.yeachin.net

A bodhisattva, or "being of enlightenment," is essentially a "buddha to be" - someone who has achieved an advanced state of enlightenment (paramitas, or perfection) and therefore is qualified to enter nirvana and be a Buddha. However, they make the choice to remain a bodhisattva in order to help other humans attain the same goal.

May all beings be happy. It is a simple wish, but seemingly very hard to achieve at this day and time.
We all suffer from our habitual patterns of thinking. We cannot see the light. The light will come through when we change: change our thought pattern, our mental attitude.
Everything is experienced in our minds.
May all beings know where to look for true happiness. Chinese calligraphy: "Joy, Delight" in semi-cursive style. Permanent sumi ink written on red ground golden flakes rice paper, mounted on professional archival cotton paper. This card size is 5 x 7 inches. It can be a greeting card or for art display.
