Exit, Enter, Peace, & Safe

Post by tattoogunman » Fri Dec 07, 2012 2:37 am

Kind of an odd question but - I saw some characters on the back of a Buddha medallion. From what I can tell, the characters are "exit, enter, peace, and safe". The question is this - in the context of Buddhism, what would that mean? Something like "enter and exit the world in peace and safety"?? See below pic - it's the bottom four characters on the right medallion.

Thanks!

the 4 Chinese characters indeed literary means "exit, enter, peace, and safe"
it's a common saying in Chinese that actually means "be save on your journey" or "when going out, or staying at home, may you will always be safe and sounds"

some household put poster with that saying on their wall
or place a small accessories in their car with the same saying, etc
so i think it's more related to Chinese culture idioms than Buddhism
