Zen gardens took root in Japan, where Zen Buddhism had a strong influence. In the Zen Buddhism tradition, Zen gardens evolved to remind practitioners that life can be elemental and simple. Used as a form of meditation, Zen gardens clear the mind of stress, pressure, and mental turmoil. Some of the first Zen gardens were called “zazen-seki”, “meditation rocks” because, in their simplicity, their very reason for being was to radiate silence, calm and tranquility to anyone contemplating them. Enjoy the ancient tradition by cultivating your own Zen garden.
