While the 8 Great stupas consecration ceremony was ongoing Tulku Ugen Chencho earthed the Peace vase at a dedicated space filled with earth located between 2 of the 8 stupas and sealed the place with an engraved plaque for everyone to remember and be able to pay respect to it. Everyone made wishes for world peace in their families and among countries.
