A life lived in the pursuit of righteousness is a life lived as a champion for justice.
The Japanese Shodo painting for the kanji design for "Righteousness," or seigi, consists of two parts. The top of the character is made up of only a few strokes and remains simple and open in design. The bottom of the character is angular and complex, creating almost a weave of lines. The juxtaposition of these two very different designs suggests freedom versus confinement, much as righteousness means to fight for freedom or justice.
