Stacked stone practice in Buddhism


“As material civilization develops, cultivate spiritual civilization accordingly.”

“All are incarnations of truth-Buddha, do each thing as an offering of worship to the Buddha.”

“Practice meditation continually, practice meditation everywhere.”

“Keep such oneness in motion and in quietness, maintain the full oneness of the spirit and the body.”

“Buddhist truth is found in life, life is Buddhist truth itself.”

You must have often seen stacked stones during your travel. There are lot of analogies to it but the basic is that it is a form of an offering. Still i discuss below a few analogies

  1. A childlike act to increase awareness
  2. To teach balance and concentration
  3. Request to deities to give the traveler safe passage
  4. Makeshift Stupas of Pagodas
  5. Good fortune where each stone represents a particular wish and possibly family member
