No sentido mais comum e imediato, defina-se bonsai como árvore miniaturizada, cultivada em vaso ou pequeno recipiente. A afirmação é correta, mas inteiramente injusta se resumida a apenas isso. Bonsai, na verdade, é a expressão artística da natureza cujo grau de beleza dependerá sempre do cuidado e da atenção dispensados por seu cultivador.
Ao contrário de outras artes, o bonsai é uma “arte viva”, que cresce ao mesmo pace em que faz crescer espiritualmente seu cultivador, num processo de profunda interação entre as partes envolvidas. Há quem vá ainda mais longe e diga sem hesitação que através da árvore o homem descobre a presença de Deus na natureza. Sem dúvida, o contato constante com uma árvore desenvolve a sensibilidade do homem e o faz sentir-se integrante do meio em que vive.
É numa época em que a ecologia suppose importância de destaque no cenário mundial, todos os esforços para devolver ao homem seu dom average (e já quase esquecido) de coexistir harmoniosamente com o meio ambiente são válidos e emergencialmente necessários.
