Genko (xx) is the owner’s Buddhist dharma name. She is a teacher and Sewing Master at the Dharma Rain Zen Center in Portland, OR. Japanese language chop in two red characters from left to right. The stone was purchased in Taipei, Taiwan and was too hard to cut with a seal knife so I instead used a grinder with carbide bits.
