Zen Garden, Vidyanagar

It is in the environs of a garden that the eternal contest between the chaotic and the peaceful, the material and the spiritual, gets played out. The value of simplicity, the importance of harmony and the reverence for nature come together in a space that allows for a conversation between a Japanese form and an Indian setting.

Water, rocks and plants create a context for meditating on eternal truths; bridges carry us from one station to another; the greenery provides an occasion to connect with our various selves.

Dedicated to our Sajjanji, this Zen Garden is an invitation to all of us to pause, reflect and refresh before renewing our commitment to the ever-spinning wheel of life – our precious samsara-chakra.
