Indoor Water Garden, the water garden handbook, is an introduction to understanding small pools, fountains, spouts, aquatic plants and even small fish that can be placed in an indoor setting to produce a healthy, meditative environment that provides a special transcendental experience, only flowing water can recreate.
The most sublime water gardens in Japan that have been sculpted since Buddhists first walked in the land of the gods, have always been particularly good at capturing that special transcendental moment in which the beholder is one with god in a kind of peak moment, and it is no different when we bring those same gardens indoors.
Indoor water gardens are a moment of the sublime.
James Joyce said of art, that if it moves us to possess it, or moves us to reject it, then it is not the sublime moment of epiphany, that sacred moment of awe, but when it is neither, just a moment in which we simply can admire the celestial creation of such a work of art, then it is indeed an epiphany, and indoor water gardens take us into that realm of the epiphany, beyond desire, beyond fear.
