Zen Rock Garden at Ryoanji

THIS is the main attraction at Ryaonji, the Zen Rock Garden. In Zen Buddhism, 15 is a precious number...signifying completeness. There are 15 rocks here, but you can see no more than 14 at any given time from any angle...the metaphor: nothing in this physical world is ever complete.
