Japanese SHAKYO Sutra Brush/Tracing Paper


Shakyo (Hand-copying sutra) is a Buddhist training of copying Buddhist scriptures, Shakyo is a Japanese traditional cultural activity that has been a cherished since the old days. 

Shakyo can help you relax. You can concentrate entirely on copying each letter with enough care that you forget all other thoughts such as fears, uncertainty, and anxiety. 

Shakyo helps to activate your brain, especially the frontal lobe, by moving your fingertips more carefully than when you use a pen.
