Inspiring Bodhisattva Calligrapher

A man who had his arms burned in a tragic fire thirty years ago relearned how to write Chinese calligraphy - first with his mouth, then with what remains of his arms. In June 2010 he was working at the holy pilgrimage site of Mt. Wutai in Shanxi, China writing characters for spiritual pilgrims.
He was doing this, in his words, "to show how the disabled can continue to contribute to society." Indeed, he is an inspiration to all of us to never give up no matter what our situation in life may be.
