  • The selection of materials for sutra copying and a beginner’s set


    If you have all the tools for copying sutras, you can write every day.

    “When starting sutra copying, you may wonder what you need to prepare. Besides the basic brush and paper, I will introduce additional tools to make sutra copying more convenient and enjoyable.

    • Sutra Copying Paper – Choose the appropriate paper that suits your writing instrument. If using a brush or brush pen, select paper that does not bleed, such as torinoko or kana paper. For beginners, recommended paper includes sutra copying paper with ruled lines and paper with the Heart Sutra as a model.
