The concept of Mushin is identical to the Japanese metaphorical expression “Mizu no Kokoro” or the “mind like water.” This mental attitude refers to a mind that is in total harmony with the Cosmos that it resembles a still pond of water without any ripples where the surface reflects a clear and perfectly undistorted image of the surroundings, like a mirror. The new lobby face has been representing infinite energy and endless possibilities. The Water Ripple encompasses the concept of peaceful experiences reaching to infinity. Limitless and unbridled human spirit which can stretch forever and is not limited by space or time. The Spirit is free to expand.
The Water Ripple Lobby represents the pure state of mind, of pure mental clarity, is produced by the absence of the ego or limited self. A Water Ripple mind is not an empty mind like an empty shell, on the contrary, is it a mind fully present, aware and free. “Mu” or “emptiness” in the Japanese word Mushin refers to an empty mind in the sense that distractions, preoccupations, fears, worries, are absent and are no more an issue for the mind, whether in combat or daily life.
Darrel Cartwright, General Manager, at The Park Lane Hotel says The Park Lane Hotel Jakarta is dedicated to enhancing the guest experience, “When a guest comes to stay at a hotel, the lobby is the first and last thing that they will experience so it’s incredibly important to their overall stay.
