Chi-Jen Liu made this piece for personal as well as magnanimous reasons. He says, "With this scroll, I wish to share the legacy of mantra charms for the benefit of future generations. Taoist masters discovered these unique patterns had the power to apply natural laws for our benefit. Mantra charms are just as effective today as they were back then."
This artwork is comprised of 72 powerful mantra charms: eight mantra charms to resolve difficult feng shui problems – for each of the nine directions. Chi-Jen Liu pressed a divine seal upon each mantra charm while in a meditative state. His peace can be felt by focusing the eyes on the calligraphy and mentally tracing the fluid lines with a calm gaze. (Note: Chinese calligraphy is read from right to left.) Alternatively, one may also choose to trace the mantra charms with the index finger or an incense stick. Many have experienced clarity of mind from this practice.
The original form of this unique piece is a long continuous scroll of Chinese parchment; however, for practical reasons, it has been carefully photographed and digitally rearranged into a rectangular format for a wholistic viewing experience.
