Hi Kahterine,

you seriously you mean to say that you have been living without
the protection of this image in your mind? Life must have been
hell! I even have buttons which I can proudly ware on my coat.
The only thing I sadly miss is a Buddhist anthem.


The Buddhist Missionary Society, Brickfields, KL. Malaysia
published this Anthem of Unity:
The published lyrics on the page don't match what is being sung
in the mp3, so it must have many verses. 
Interesting that the music is strongly influenced by western
harmonies, nothing Asian about this chorus.
