Zen: The Circle of Continuous Perfection

In Zen, the circle represents the process of continuous perfection, leading to a self with a difference. This process has no beginning and no end. The practitioner following a long pathway around the circumference of a circle, which eventually leads back to the starting point, but now he or she has had the experience of the journey and is changed from the person he or she once was.


The self is thus both the reason for the journey and the goal of the journey, both the path and the fruit of the path, both the question and the answer. And by "self" Zen means self-knowing, the recognition of our essential nature, which is ultimately identified with "emptiness", the infinite potential, from which all things arise.

Yin and Yang

Yin and Yang. Hot and cold. Male and female. The philosophy of yin and yang lies at the heart of Chinese culture. The first references to yin and yang come from the I Ching, the five classic works compiled and edited by Confucius. Taken literally, yin and yang mean the dark side and sunny side of a hill. People commonly think of yin and yang as opposing forces.

However, it is really more appropriate to view them as complementary pairs. The Chinese believe problems arise not when the two forces are battling, but when there is an imbalance between them in the environment. Floods, health disorders, business problems, divorce, or even a fire in the kitchen – all can be attributed to disharmony in the forces of yin and yang.

Dharma Wheel

A Buddhist emblem resembling a wagon wheel, with eight spokes, each representing one of the eight tenets of buddhist belief. The circle symbolizes the completeness of the Dharma, the spokes represent the eightfold path leading to enlightenment. It is drawn from an Indian symbol, but instead of representing Samsara, or endless rebirth, it symbolizes overcoming obstacles. Similar to the wheel of a cart that keeps revolving, it symbolizes the Buddha's teaching as it continues to be spread widely and endlessly.

The eight spokes of the wheel represent the Noble Eightfold Path of Buddhism, the most important Way of Practice. The Noble Eightfold Path refers to right view, right thought, right speech, right behavior, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right meditation.

Proportions of Man

The Vitruvian Man, also known as  Proportions of Man, is a world-renowned drawing created by Leonardo da Vinci. It is accompanied by notes based on the work of Vitruvius. The drawing depicts a nude male figure in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and simultaneously inscribed in a circle and square.

The drawing itself is often used as an implied symbol of the essential symmetry of the human body, and by extension, to the universe as a whole. It is believed that Leonardo symbolized the material existence by the square and spiritual existence by the circle.
