Vase planted by Maria Jose Muñozcano, Mona Rabie, Emiliano Ysunza, Ann-Marie, Juan Carlos Kaiten, Mohammed Ramadan and Marteen on September 16th, 2015

“This was the first Peace Vase that some of the people from our group planted.  We were having difficulties finding a steady peace of land were no one could see that we were digging a hole so no curiosity would make them come dig it out.  When we found a good place, Mohammed digged with all his strength and was very skilful to distract other local people!

We planted the vase and recited Shantideva’s aspiration: For as long as space remains, For as long as sentient beings remain. Until then may I too remain. To dispel the miseries of the world.
