Zen gardens are serene gardens consisting of rocks, plants, and sand or gravel. They were created in Japan by Zen Buddhist monks to aid in meditation and to teach zen principles and concepts.
These minimalist gardens usually evoke landscapes. For example, rocks could represent mountains or islands, while white sand is used to symbolize water, purity, emptiness, and distance.
Sand in zen gardens is raked into forms that mimic the motion of water. Gentle wavy lines can represent the flow of water, while perfect concentric circles around smaller rocks can represent the ripples formed by dropping stones in water. The pattern that emerges is said to be a projection of the mind of the person raking the sand.
