Water in Buddhist Garden Design

At the Buddha's Face we have written a lot about Buddhist garden design - but one area we haven't written much about is the use of water in Buddhist garden design. A water feature or pond can be a stunning centerpiece of any garden and by including a Buddha statue can become a focal point and an aid to a serene and contemplative refection. Alongside the aesthetic is the ability of water to attract wildlife , and a garden's most useful friend the terminator of insects - the frog. In a new article over on our Buddhism 101 project we discuss the use and features associated with water Buddha gardens.
