The Chinese Symbol Tsukubai is inscribed with a famous poem from the Ryōan-ji temple in Kyoto. The kanji written on the tsukubai reads, "what one has is all one needs", and is meant to reinforce the basic anti-materialistic teachings of Buddhism.

The symbols are insignificant when read alone, but if read in combination with 口 (kuchi) in the centre of the bowl they become 吾, 唯, 足, 知. This translates as "I only know plenty" (吾 = ware = I, 唯 = tada = only, 足 = taru = plenty, 知 = shiru = know). 

Note: This Tsukubai is hand carved from natural granite so variations and imperfections may occur.
