Lake Maggiore
Vase planted by Daniele, Paolo and friends, September 2004

“Lago Maggiore (‘Lake Major’) is mainly in Italy, though its northern part is in Switzerland.  Its deepest point, -372m, is in Italy, between Gonte and Ghiffa.  The vase was given to the Lugano Shambhala group (in Ticino, Switzerland). We took a boat out and first performed aspiration prayers; then the vase was dropped into the deepest point of the lake.”
