“Everyone is a Buddha!” said Venerable Master Hsing Yun. Putting aside the question of “who is actually a Buddha?” it can at least be said that Venerable Master Hsing Yun is a bodhisattva who never tires. Turning 90 years old this year, he has faced 40 years of diabetes that led to a serious eye condition, along with retinal detachment. With unclear visions in both eyes, he can barely see. Despite having to write calligraphy with shaking hands, he still is able to let his heart guide his hands in completing the extremely rare “one-stroke calligraphy.” “One-stroke calligraphy” means that every piece of calligraphy written by Venerable Master is done in one stroke. No discontinuation is allowed from beginning to end, as any discontinuation will make it difficult to continue to the next character, because his vision does not allow him to distinguish the distance between each character. For this reason, he is forced to complete the whole work in one stroke.
