THE ORIGINS OF DESIGNED SACRED SPACE IN BUDDHIST TRADITIONS
A Journey into landscape, from Kyoto to Western Tibet
Dennis Winters, OALA, ASLA
This book explores the spiritual, psychological and physical history of Buddhist geomancy in the creation of sacred meditation gardens. The journey begins in Japan with a fresh look at Zen gardens, tracing their roots (pardon the pun) back through China to the mystical landscapes of Tibet and India.
Dennis is a well-known Canadian landscape architect and Vajrayana practitioner.
