PDA Zen Garden

Kare­san­sui, or the “dry-land­scape” style Japan­ese gar­dens have been in exis­tence for cen­turies, but it was­n’t until the late sixth cen­tu­ry with the advent of Zen Bud­dhism did “dry style” gar­dens began to evolve. The ear­li­er gar­dens were cre­at­ed where one could enter and walk around and much larg­er in scale. Around the eleventh cen­tu­ry, zen priests adopt­ed the “dry land­scape” style and began build­ing gar­dens to serve a dif­fer­ent pur­pose. They were to be used as an aid to cre­ate a deep­er under­stand­ing of the zen con­cepts. Not only was the view­ing intend­ed to aid in med­i­ta­tion but the entire cre­ation of the gar­den was also intend­ed to trig­ger con­tem­pla­tion. By the late 1200’s, the basic prin­ci­ples had been estab­lished and up to the present day, they have been refined and extended.
