So you can create a mini zen garden
Everyone knows what a Zen garden is, right? But did you know that you can also make a Mini Zen Garden? This great combination of materials, shapes and constellations that contribute to the perfect unity can also be reproduced in this form. So you do not need a large yard.
What are the Zen Gardens in Mini form for?
The Mini Zen Gardens, like the rest, are designed to make you feel calmer and more relaxed. But the first variant, which will be discussed in more detail today, is realized in certain cases. These are needed if you have little space. So we are dealing with another, successfully applied form of Buddhist practice that has been adapted to our modern needs.
The Zen garden as such
We said at the beginning that probably everyone knows what a Zen garden is. But it never hurts to update this important and fundamental knowledge. This garden has been created from gravel and sand. The sand is reminiscent of running water. The stones stand for the mountains and the plants. All these elements are brought together here to represent harmony in nature.
From this point of view, creating a Zen garden in miniature or large size is not that difficult. Actually, everything depends on the scales. They will not only provide a lot of peace, but also an appealing appearance at home.
Maintaining the Mini Zen Gardens is pretty easy, just like the big ones. Garden is more or less meant here figuratively. It is a place of reflection. There you will find reflection. This happens through rest and relaxation. Practically you do not need to pour or fertilize here. So easy cleaning is quite enough.
What role do Mini Zen Gardens play in our lives?
The Mini Zen Gardens play a huge role in reducing stress in modern day life. Mostly you can buy such a garden too. But tinkering is also possible. You need a hand crafted container, fine sand, bamboo, polished stones, figures in different styles and colors. Do you have everything?
Then go to work!
Steps in creating the Mini Zen Garden
The box, which is at least 4 cm deep, must be attached to the side. You can also take simple cardboard, which you then attached to the sides with wooden slats.
Second, you need white or yellow sand or gravel. If you do not live near a beach, then buy them in the pet shops. Wooden swing is now also used. Now give your imagination free rein.
River stones complete the Zen look
Third, pick the stones for your Mini Zen Garden. They must be smooth and adapted to the shape of the garden. They have to be put down so that they can be seen from all sides.
Fourth, you need a table or box where you place the Mini Zen Garden.
