Stupa: is a mound-like structure containing Buddhist relics, typically the remains
of Buddha, used by Buddhists as a place of worship. The stupa is the oldest
Buddhist religious monument and was originally only a simple mound of mud or clay
to cover relics of the Buddha.
Pagoda: The stupa evolved into the pagoda as Buddhism spread to other Asian
countries. The pagoda has varied forms that also include bellshaped and pyramidal
ones. Today, in the Western context, there is no clear distinction between the
stupa and the pagoda. But in general stupa is used for a Buddhist structure of
India or south-east Asia, while pagoda refers to a building in east Asia which can
be entered and which may be secular in purpose.

Zen Gardens
Zen Gardens: The Japanese rock gardens or "dry landscape" gardens, often called
"Zen gardens", are a type of garden that features extensive use of rocks or
stones, along with plants native to rocky or alpine environments that were
influenced mainly by Zen Buddhism and can be found at Zen temples of meditation.
The act of raking the gravel into a pattern recalling waves or rippling water has an
aesthetic function. Zen priests practice this raking also to help their
concentration. Achieving perfection of lines is not easy. Developing variations in
patterns is a creative and inspiring challenge.
Buddhist Garuda Statues: Lord Garuda is
believed to be eagle king and appears as a
large mythical bird or bird like creature in
Hindu and Buddhist mythology.

Hindu Deities
Buddha Rupas
Hindu Deities: Within Hinduism a large number of personal gods are worshipped.
These beings are either aspects of the supreme Brahman (the one supreme, universal
Spirit that is the origin and of the universe),
Avatars of the supreme being(In Hinduism, an
avatar is a deliberate descent of a deity to earth),
or significantly powerful entities known
as devas. Often these beings are depicted in humanoid or partially humanoid forms.
Buddhist Rupas: Rupa literally means form, but is commonly used to refer to
statues of the Buddha.
Buddhist Mandala
Maṇḍala The basic form of most Hindu and Buddhist mandalas is a square with
four gates containing a circle with a center point. These mandalas have spiritual
and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism. They are also a key part of
meditation practices. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for
focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and
as an aid to meditation and trance induction.
