a world of dew, 
and within every dewdrop 
a world of struggle

Japanese gardens are designed to convey spiritual and philosophical messages. They convey an understanding that man and nature are one, aiming to express the religious belief that the whole universe is in the smallest thing. The branch of religion and philosophy that this is based on is Zen Buddhism which teaches that everything in the world, right down to the smallest seed, is governed by the same cosmic source in the universe.
