Product Details

Our luxuriously soft beach towels are made from brushed microfiber with a 100% cotton back for extra absorption.   The top of the towel has the image printed on it, and the back is white cotton.   Our beach towels are available in two different sizes: beach towel (32" x 64") and beach sheet (37" x 74").

Artist's Description

This artwork is based on Zen Master Bankei Yotaku's (1622-1693) uniquely identifiable enso. Using two strokes, instead of the traditional one stroke, he redefined the form. Two strokes, two actions, each with its own energy and boundary, embrace each other and come together as one circle; a perfect image of peace.

Bankei created this enso in his work entitled 'Sakyamuni and Maitreya'. Alongside the enso, he wrote 'Sakyamuni and Maitreya are both servants', referring to case 45 of the classic koan collection. Sakyamuni is the Supreme Buddha of our age; Maitreya is Sakyamuni's foretold successor. According to tradition, Sakyamuni woke up under the bodhi tree and declared "Now I am enlightened together with all beings", which is interpreted to mean 'All beings were his servants and he was servant to all beings'. Thus, the power of this koan and of Bankei's enso is that life is a circle of giving.
