Looking in the window of a charity shop and noticed this plate.. tucked away, something someone no longer wanted or had use of. Liked the mandarin ducks and water lilies. On the back it had Imperial Jingdezhan porcelain and many words in Chinese. It was painted by Zhang Song Mao, part of a series of six plates – Gift of Grace, Beauty, Happiness, Truth and Gift of Joy.
Read the Gift of Truth or Dharma was considered by Buddha to be the greatest gift of all and Dharma i think means protection and about finding inner peace – without inner peace, outer peace is impossible.
