HEN

amane(ku)

meaning: widely, everywhere

遍歴 == henreki == (noun) travels, pilgrimage
普遍 == fuhen == (noun, adjective that takes な) universality, ubiquity, omnipresence




Left/outer radical is 'movement'. Right radical is a Non-General Use character meaning 'doorplate', composed of 'door' (戸) and 'writing tablet' (冊), which is acting phonetically to express 'roundabout/indirect'. Thus, 'moving in a roundabout fashion'. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Move widely, leaving writing tablets at door.'
