Those guilty of crimes need to be held accountable, but how do we repair the social fabric of our nation? You can expect your Buddhist practice to go through a cycle of ebb and flow in terms of energy, inspiration, and focus.
It’s important you don’t give up practice in times of low ebb, but instead recognize this as part of a natural cycle. Creating a zen garden is a great way to reduce stress, improve your focus, and develop a sense of well-being.
Read this article to find out more about Japanese zen gardens, so you can reap the benefits they provide. Zen gardens emphasize the principles of naturalness (Shi zen), simplicity (Kans), and austerity (Yoko).
Carefully raked sand or gravel with precisely placed rocks are the main parts of a zen garden. Sand raked into a round, spiral or rippled pattern represents the sea.
A zen garden can also contain a simple bridge or path and lanterns made of rock or stone. These features add a sense of distance, and you can use them as a focal point to aid meditation.
