FRUGAL LIVING – Japanese stone pages or “dry landscapes,” often referred to as zen pages, create miniature landscapes through carefully crafted rock layers, water features, moss, shrubs and shrubs, and use gravel or sand that is used to represent ripples in water.
The zen yard is generally relatively small, surrounded by rooms, and is generally intended for viewing while sitting from an outside viewpoint, a kind of green terrace, the residence of a temple monk or monastery. Classic zen pages are made in Zen Buddhist temples in Kyoto, Japan during the Muromachi Era. They are intended to mimic the essence of the nature, not the actual appearance, and to help meditate on the true meaning of life.
Zen pages were first raised throughout the 8th century and often imitated the Chinese Song Dynasty. Small lakes and islands are covered with moss and grass and shrubs that are preserved in combination with larger rocks and gravel overlays intended to represent nature’s spirit on a more sexual scale.
These gardens are meant to be felt from one point outside the walls of the yard, and are often regarded as rocky natural scenery. This Zen page is selected for its historical significance and its simple beauty.
