“sacred stones” (or Ovoo). An ovoo (heap) is a sacred cairn found in Mongolian shamanic religious traditions, usually made from rocks with wood or from wood.
Ovoos are often found at the top of mountains and in high places, like mountain passes. They serve mainly as Tengriism religious sites, used in the worship of the mountains and the sky as well as in Buddhist or Shamanist ceremonies, but often are also landmarks.
In our lives we have all places we have sweet memories at, we have points in our life that are our milestones, our sacred stones, our Ovoo. Isn’t that a nice idea that the Ovoo stands also for the milestones in our life?

taking the right path ?
My thought’s about life
Sacred Stones to me are the stepping stones in life, each point is a milestone as the years go by, in old age if you can sit back in your armchair and feel contented with what you have achieved over the years, then you can live those golden years in peace.
