Pagodas and garden architecture
Pagodas blend in perfectly with bonsai trees, Buddha statuettes and stone and sandy Zen gardens. This should please every fan of the Far East who would like to decorate their property in an oriental way. However, it is better not to overdo with the number of ornaments. Asian aesthetics are characterized by minimalism and lack of exaggerated glamour. The area should be arranged by integrating people with nature. If you want, you can try to organize your green space following the principles of feng shui. This way you get an effect full of elegance and simplicity.
What do pagodas mean in a cultural context?
It is also worth mentioning the symbolism that lies behind oriental pagodas. They can be seen in all countries. Mainly in those dominated by Buddhism (Japan, China, Vietnam, India, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Burma). Therefore, their meaning is closely related to the philosophy of the Far East. Pagodas are said to be the path to increased perception and self-awareness, to bring prosperity, wisdom, peace and harmony. Pagodas have the power to heal the sick and “pull” negative chi out of them. It is a source of revitalization and great energy. Besides, they also help you gain happiness in financial matters. They care about diligence and balance in business, restore intelligence and alertness. What’s more, they are meant to ward off natural disasters and bad luck.
The number of floors in a pagoda should be odd, the highest have even fifteen floors. The design comes from a stupa – a memorial reliquary in the shape of a dome or hemisphere with a spire, which originates from ancient India. In five-floor pagodas, each floor symbolizes one of the elements (earth, water, fire, wind and an element unknown in Europe – emptiness). In seven-floor pagodas, each level means one of the northern stars and one of the seven treasures of Buddhism. In those with nine floors, each floor is a metaphor for one of the characteristics needed to succeed in school and professional life.
