  14. 14. CREATING A BUDDHIST GARDEN  Buddhist gardens can be large or small. They generally include paths for wandering contemplatively and areas for visitors to sit and reflect, often under the shade of a graceful tree. If an unpleasant view detracts from the peaceful atmosphere of the garden, it can be blocked with climbing, trellised plants or a bamboo screen.
  15. 15. ELEMENTS Statues  Statues of Buddha should be raised above the ground to display proper respect.  Statues are placed on a marble slab or altar table, but even a mound of stones or a woven mat is appropriate.

  16. 16. Lanterns  Lanterns are a recognizable feature of Buddhist gardens; however, the purpose of traditional lanterns isn’t to provide light.  Originally used in temples and shrines, lanterns were signs of worship that honored Buddha or revered ancestors. Lotus flower  The lotus flower is an important element in Buddhist garden design, respected for its ability to provide beautiful blooms even in shallow, stagnant water.
  17. 17. BUDDHIST GARDEN IDEAS  A Zen style garden is a simple garden with no unnecessary features. Often, a dry garden consists primarily of raked, white gravel with a few simple trees and shrubs. Plants and stones are arranged in groups, much like islands in the sea of gravel. The gravel is raked in patterns around the groupings to resemble ocean waves.  A Mandala-style garden is centered around a sacred mountain, often represented by a large, upright stone. Traditionally, the mountain – the axis between earth and the heavens – is considered the center of the universe. Visitors stroll through the garden with the mountain always to their right.
