Re: Translation help

The light of knowledge and tradition - chishiki to dentou no hikari - 知識と伝統の光 - sounds a little strange in Japanese. It gives the feeling of a religious cult maybe.

How about 叡智 eichi instead. It means a way to get deep wisdom or enlightenment so it's appropriate for your university.

So Eichi Dojo 叡智道場 (and if you really want you could use chishiki to dentou no hikari as a motto). That's my suggestion. But wait for a few more before deciding.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
