Copan, Honduras
Vase planted by Ana Raquel Herrera and family on December 27th, 2018

We planted one of the vases in the Copan Ruins, the land of the Mayans. We travelled almost 12 hours from Tegucigalpa during our Christmas holidays. A dear friend gave us the opportunity to plant the vase in Sian Ka’an (the Entrance or Portal to Heaven), the in-between from Xi’bal’ba (the Mayan underworld) to Ka’an (Heaven). The Mayans cared for the earth and its natural resources out of a vow of respect to mother nature; they were deeply religious and were considered the master technologists of their time in agriculture, astronomy and construction. Placing the vase near the Mayan Ruins in Copan is of great significance as it links past, present, and future generations.

During the planting of the vase we recited Tashi Gyepa’s ‘The Verses of the Eight Noble Auspicious Ones’ and Wang Dü: ‘The Great Cloud of Blessings’ — the prayer which magnetizes all that appears and all that exists.
