For those who are not familiar with Zen gardens, the concept originated in Japan in the sixth century. It was first created by Zen Buddhist monks to aid meditation. Later, these gardens were used to teach the principles of Zen. Also known as Japanese rock gardens, these aesthetically appealing landscapes appeal to people who love controlled settings of raked sand/rocks and pruned plantation. The design and structure of these gardens have changed and refined over the years, but the basic settings have remained the same.
The Design and Symbolism
Zen gardens mostly comprise of carefully maintained rocks, sand, gravels, pruned trees, bushes, moss, etc. Rocks are the foundational items in Japanese gardens and often represent mountains, but also symbolise the figure of Buddha, an epitome of harmony and peace. Similarly, other elements of the garden have different meaning such as islands and mountains, and flowing water. Zen gardens at first may appear lacking everything that describes a garden as we know it. But, they are supposed to remind us of the natural landscape even though the garden in itself is carefully controlled by man. Zen gardens are supposed to remind us of our roots that are often forgotten amid the crazy city life. Once you understand the meaning and significance of these gardens, you’ll see the importance of having such a landscape near you.
