Beginner's Mind in Japanese is 初心 which is read shoshin. The Japanese word shoshin meaning "Beginner's Mind" is composed of the kanji 初 (read sho) meaning "first time; beginning" and 心 (read shin) meaning "heart; mind; spirit". shoshin refers to a spirit of eager learning without preconceptions. This is the way to approach the study of anything new and, more importantly, the study of what one is already familiar with. One might think of shoshin as a constant reminder to see the world through the curiosity and wonder of the eyes of a child. For more information see the Wikipedia article Shoshin.
