      "The Enso" Zen Circle. The universal symbol of wholeness and completion, the cyclical nature of existence, and a visual manifestation of the Heart Sutra, "Form is emptiness, emptiness is form."

    Artwork by Kazuaki Tanahashi Making the enso—the Zen circle that conveys everything, the whole world, complete, the ultimate Zen symbol of emptiness—is kind of a practice. Ensos are traditionally done in sumi ink, black on white, but Kazuaki Tanahashi is well known for his colorful ones, which he makes with one brushstroke.
