Sometimes people ask why there is one larger bead in the center of our bracelets. This single bead represents that we’re all one. In a world of diversity, there are many different kinds of people. People who have come from various religious traditions, cultures and backgrounds. Beyond our differences, I believe there is something that connects us all together and that is the innate wish to be happy and free from suffering. At the core level, I think all people are fundamentally the same. In recent history, humans have been interacting with each other more often than ever before. Sometimes cultures who before modernization had never known of their neighbors over the next mountain. Since it seems like the world is rapidly getting smaller, I think this is a crucial moment to see what connects us together - the desire to live in a world of harmony.
