A Zen garden

Daitokuji Temple, Kyoto sightseeing
This is a little Zen garden, surrounded by corridors.

The garden consists of white gravels and some stones.

White gravels means the water in the sea and the stones means rocks or islands in the sea. Two round on the surface means ripples.

The picture means that drips fall onto the ground, making the ripples and that many drops will become a stream, then a river, and finally the sea. In short, a pile of little efforts will make big success.

A Zen garden within a room, with the hidden symbolisms you mentioned...makes this photo very interesting. Great job!

Thank you for your nice comments.
Zen garden sounds more popular in some countries than in Japan. Very interesting.
Zsolt: Thank you very much for enjoying my blog:-))
