[No. 0012 Kanji] Life

kanji for a life
This kanji stands for "life", and is pronounced "いのち inochi". I'll explain etymology of this kanji.
"命" is divided to two parts, "令" and "口".

"令" is visually expressing "a person with a sacred hat, dropping on the knee".
"口" is visually expressing a container which a pray is set.
So we pray, and the God provides us our lives. This is ancient thought of life.
