Something about a Zen Garden speaks to my soul in a way that nothing else quite achieves. I found this video of the Ryoan Ji garden near Kyoto. It is short [1′ 03″] and a little shaky but, unlike many other such videos, it is not marred by music or commentary. The only noise you hear are the summer insects – it brought me right back there. I hope it will give you a glimpse into something very special.
