This very special book explores the innovative approach to garden making and landscape design found in the work of Martin Mosko, a landscape architect and Zen teacher working in the Rocky Mountain region of Colorado.
Mosko perceives the garden as a mandala, a symbolic picture of the ideal world. All the natural and man-made structures of the garden take their place in the mandala as one of its five elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Space. Balance is produced by the mind conditioned by meditation and a clear understanding of its own nature.
Mosko's work incorporates principles of Asian and Western garden design and demonstrates how to deploy garden materials to reflect the contemplative mind. After explaining theory and method, the book leads us into five of Mosko's sumptuous gardens, each a reflection of the mind of clarity and calm. Breathtaking photography evokes the living spirit of these magical contemplative gardens.
