To live a in a peaceful Zen state of mind, we sometimes need a little bit of help from our surroundings. Our Zen Garden and Buddha Statues can help create a peaceful atmosphere in which our bodies and minds can begin to relax and let go of the chaos that often takes over our thoughts and minds. Lets face it, we dont go to a rock concert when we have a migraine headache, and we dont go into a messy room when we are trying to concentrate away from distractions. Our Zen Garden statues offer peaceful energy to your home and garden, that same peaceful energy that you can harness and bring within yourself.
There is something incredibly powerful behind the idea of creating a special type of environment to enhance and enrich certain types of activity. For instance, if you want a creative work environment, you do not maintain uniform cubicles surrounded by strong florescent lights and white walls. If you want to create a playful environment for children, you dont put them in an empty room with school chairs. Thats what the whole idea of going on vacation is all about. We are literally going away to a new place, preferably a fun or warm location, one free and far away from the daily stresses of our lives. We travel sometimes across the globe to reach that outer location where our minds can begin to relax.
Creating a peaceful Zen Garden in your own backyard is a wonderful way to invite peacefulness and calmness into your home and garden. A beautiful Buddha statue sitting in full lotus position with eyes closed, one hand rest above the other is almost as serene as a delicate flower in bloom, standing still in front of the glorious sun. Being, without thinking, living, without worrying, existing, without continual contemplation. Where silence truly is golden and worshiped, where clarity is born and mind and body rejuvenated.
Some of our popular fountains deliver beauty and acoustical pleasures in the serene sounds of flowing water. A cascade of motion will take over your cascade of overlapping thoughts. Tranquility can emerge again in your home and garden when the sounds of a gentle stream are welcomed into your home.
Need a bit of humor in your Zen garden? Nobody said Zen gardens and meditation had to be serious! Bring some lighthearted fun into your Zen garden with a pair of meditation garden gnomes, or a frog statue sitting in full lotus position. For an every classical version, you might enjoy one of our few Garden Jizo statues too.
