About This Book

Japanese stone gardens provide tranquil settings where visitors can shed the burdens and stresses of modern existing, satisfy age-old yearnings for solitude and repose and experience the restorative power of art and nature. This book provides an insight into the powerful mystique and dynamism of Japanese stone gardens, from their earliest use as props in animistic rituals to their appropriation by Zen monks and priests to create settings conducive to mediation and contemplation and, finally, to their contemporary use and meaning. With glossary, bibliography and index.
