Golden Chain
Can traditional value systems translate across language and time? Will succeeding generations understand the beliefs that sustained  immigrant ancestors?

For many Japanese Americans, a simple Buddhist prayer weaves its way through generations of community service. The expression may evolve, the core remains constant:

“I am a link in Amida’s golden chain of love that stretches around the world. I will keep my link bright and strong...
I will be kind and gentle to every living thing, and protect all that are weaker than myself...”
