The zen garden has high significance in the Buddhist culture and is used actively during meditation and relaxation. This miniature zen garden is styled to resemble those found throughout Asia. It offers peaceful relaxation with sparkling white sand, river stones, a silver Buddha figurine, an incense holder and a tealight candle holder. Encourage your customers to add other items that have special meaning to them to make it uniquely theirs.
Buddha figures carry meaning, each of which is different. This figure depicts the mudra (hand gesture) called mida-no jouin. The left hand mirrors the right, representing the two worlds of enlightenment and illusion. A mudra like this is used to detach from the everyday events of life which may be filled with desire, lust and passion and instead contemplate what lies beyond with discriminating awaeness.
