Buddhas in Gardens - Revisited

The garden the place where we go to recuperate ,charge our batteries and interact often in a controlled nature with nature,tamed and mastered. The Buddha was lover of nature and it was under the Bodhi tree in the forest where he gained enlightenment. So it is natural that Buddhists should seek to create and nurture serene and contemplative gardens all the better to truly understand the message of the Buddha. To still the mind and stop the noise of the self even for a few moment reveals the true mastery of creation in all its attendant glory.

At the Buddha's Face as part of our Buddhism 101 project we have revisited the subject of the Garden Buddha Statues and Buddhist Garden Design.

Not forgetting of course Peter Sellers as Chance the Gardener ....

Chance the Gardener: Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again.
