RE: Spiritual excursion through the Path of the Dharma

in #travelfeed2 years ago

Interesting! I have seen stacked stones in few tourist spots in my country and in Cambodia but I never bothered to really research about it meaning. On a very casual conversation with a friend while we were watching the stacked stones on a beach, she was saying that it is something like a test of how balanced one's life is. The higher you can stack up, the better balance you have. And the higher your stack is, the closer you are to God. It was also just a hearsay that she was passing on that time. We do not know which religion refer to it as being the measurement of closeness to God.

It is a good thing that you mentioned about the environment impact because I am sure almost everybody does not know that. Indeed, respecting nature is the best we can leave in our visited areas.

You have great shots with your photos. What camera did you use here?

Sort:  

On those beaches there were many or few stones stacked? What is the religion that predominates in your country and in Cambodia? In Asia is where there are more followers of the Dharmic religions, perhaps that's why your friend gave you that motive, which is really one of several that exist.

From what I see balancing stones is less common than I thought, maybe that is why there is not so much information about it, especially the negative environmental impact that we can cause if we exceed this.

By the way! I used a Canon Rebel EOS T2i.

Thanks for sharing with me, a hug 😊
