This beautiful pond garden of Tenryu-ji is esteemed as one of the best masterpieces in the art of landscaping in Japan.  This Zen garden was originally designed by Muso Soseki in the 15th century so as to artistically represent the state of enlightenment (Satori) which a Zen monk finally experiences.  This pond is called Sogen-chi, which is derived from the Zen word Sogen no itteki sui which means that a droplet of water finally makes the vast ocean.
