What is 意境, Chinese PinYin is yì jìng. What does it mean?  It is not difficult to understand the meaning by the direct translation of each character:

  • 意 (yi) means intention, meaning;
  • 境 (jing) means state, condition, level

However, when you put these two Chinese characters together, even Chinese will puzzle and reply “it’s about the holistic description of inspiration or feeling”.  When even Chinese have problem to give a very analytical explanation, you can then imaging the difficulty for foreigners who would like to learn the meaning of these two words without straight forwards and clear explanation?

Chinese is a inspirational graphic language, there are lot of expressions imply inspirational thinking or imagination which require repeatedly non-stop reflections from daily living.
