EVT3 “I live where you live”video
About 2:00 it appears 2 sand dune,and this place is “dry landscape” or “Zen garden”. This picture should be taken in a japanese temple(大德寺)
Dry landscape Is the symbol of Zen Buddhism,many small stones make the shape of small hill and water wave, represents the illusions of exist and non- exist and so on,to some degree,are all mirage….(use my own language), there are no plant or flower or pond in the dry landscape, it looks inanimate at first,but do you really think so?

The Japanese rock garden (枯山水) or "dry landscape" garden, often called a zen garden, creates a miniature stylized landscape through carefully composed arrangements of rocks, water features, moss, pruned trees and bushes, and uses gravel or sand that is raked to represent ripples in water. A zen garden is usually relatively small, surrounded by a wall, and is usually meant to be seen while seated from a single viewpoint outside the garden, such as the porch of the hojo, the residence of the chief monk of the temple or monastery. Classical zen gardens were created at temples of Zen Buddhism in Kyoto, Japan during the Muromachi Period. They were intended to imitate the intimate essence of nature, not its actual appearance, and to serve an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life.
