Pict Stones of Scotland

The Pict stones reveal the knowledge of local people about how the sixth sense, the mind, works. Abstract symbols were used since the 6th century BC to make exceptional monuments to the concentrated mind that is expressed as fleeting rays of light (Maeshowe), as winged horses or birds to observe objects at a distance and as fishes "diving into materiality" to observe the truth of existence inside the body, following methods originally taught by the enlightened Buddha Gotama. For a period of at least 1,700 years - from the 6th century BC when Maeshowe was built until the 13th century when over 30 rune inscriptions were made inside the tomb by the Old Norse Vikings - various nationalities lived together peacefully. They meditated in “man-made caves" in Scotland: brochs, souterrains and earth houses. The Pict stones were made as votive stones, or perhaps as "sign boards" for travellers to find remote locations where people meditated. Evidence of the symbols on the stones make clear that they practiced advanced meditation techniques, aligned to the system of meditation originally taught by the Buddha in India.
