The Middle Way. An Enso is the Zen symbol that represents enlightenment.

The Middle Way

It’s generally considered an output of enlightened activity. It’s both the symbol and reality of enlightenment. It’s a brush stroke from a master, that in a single thought-less breath captures the moment of non-thought. The brush stroke is a record of reality, the whole world is contained within the stroke. The Middle Way has been using the Enso as part of the rotating mast header for a while. I created a stencil based on a Enso seen on Alan Watt’s houseboat. Now it’s your chance to get 1 of 20 limited edition, hand printed, signed Enso for your walls. 11 have already sold.

Buddha's World & Buddhism

Please see my spiritual newsletter My focus is not on rituals, symbolism or gods, but on the path that Buddhism points to and its vision on the nature of our every day "reality". Texts on the nature of the Buddhist path, texts on the nature of reality (see emptiness), karma, and texts on meditation. As the title suggests different Buddhist lineages are represented here. Amongst them Tibetan Buddhism and Zen. Of living teachers of Buddhism, material by Thich Nhat Hanh,the Dalai Lama has been included here, among many others. Katinka Hesselink.
