The meaning of Enso
The enso is a sacred Japanese Buddhist symbol that represents a path to enlightenment. Characterized by a circular brush stroke, the artist may leave the circle open or incomplete, signify possibility, or the artist may choose to close the circle, representing wholeness. It shows an individual's journey, both inwards and outwards, to uncover deeper meaning, deeper understanding and deeper truth.
