I saw a random image of Chinese character. Can someone tell me what letter it is. I had often seen it as a mysterious symbol. So where does one use this symbol? Is it spiritual or zen kind of symbol?



This character is written as "mei3" in pinyin and is pronounced similarly to the English word "May" (like the month).

It generally means "beautiful".


This Chinese character means "beauty" or "good". The pinyin of this word is měi.

You can make the common Chinese phrases, such as "美丽" měi lì (beautiful); "美国" měi guó (America); "美味" měi wèi (delicious).

It means beauty/beautiful in Chinese, and it's spelling is měi, the third tone.
