Mount Vetrnik, Banjsice, Primorska
Vase planted by Ani Karma Wangmo, Mojca Poberaj and Karmen Gorjanc, Nov. 3, 2011

“This is the area of ‘The Battles of the Isonzo’ (“Soška Fronta”) where a series of 12 battles took place between the Austro-Hungarian and Italian armies in World War I (June 1915 and November 1917), mostly on the territory of present-day Slovenia, during which there were around 1.2 million casualties.  Because of this enormous suffering in this area, our Palpung Dharma Center requested a peace vase and we placed it in this most affected area.  Ani Karma Wangmo led us in puja and prayers.”
