Jack Salamone, member of the Great Middle Way Buddhist Association, spearheaded the planning and planting of a Peace Pole at what is to be the sight for the Great Middle Way Mountain Hermitage in Crestone, Colorado.

Jack states “Our group is called the Great Middle Way Buddhist Association, We practice in the Great Middle Way tradition of the Jonang Lineage.”

Currently Jack shares he is “helping to raise money to build the The Great Middle Way Mountain Hermitage. This will be a vegan, low cost and multi-sectarian Buddhist center intended to provide a place to practice contemplation and solitude away from large urban centers in a quiet natural setting.”

Mr Salamone and his associates expressed gratitude in being able to work with the World Peace Prayer Society, as he believes,

“We hold the same views regarding the supremacy of peace and non-violence as a non-sectarian approach to living”.

The “mani” stones placed around the base of the pole are inscribed with the
mantra “om mani peme hum” which represents the union of wisdom and compassion.
