Anchoring the mind, stilling the senses, a simple altar with your favorite deity, hand knotted mala beads helps you transition to a meditative state. Your garden is an extension of your home and the Buddha statue sitting under the huge oak tree is zen manifested. The dark green of the leaves, the huge trunk of the trees and exposed roots play with the natural gray granite of the lifesize Maharaja elephant. Mindful decor brings in the zen of peace into our lives.
