Karesansui, more often known as Zen gardens, are like tiny recreations of natural settings. Meditation is a "meditative state" in Chinese and Sanskrit translations of the term “Zen.” These gardens were first developed by monks practicing Zen Buddhism in Japan to serve as an aid to meditation and as an imitation of natural settings.
Elements of nature are arranged in such a way in a Zen garden that it becomes a place for reflective stillness. However, in contrast to Japanese gardens, these are entirely arid environments with barely a smattering of vegetation. These gardens are replete with allegory and metaphor. Rocks and stones represent the islands and mountains, and sand and gravel may be molded into swirling patterns like the ocean or a river. Additionally, there is some greenery in the layout that represents woods.
Relaxation, increased discipline, and increased creativity benefit from spending time in a Zen garden, which is why they are so effective. Are you not tempted to add a Zen garden to your available area?
