In retrospect, I find the ideas for this paper emerged from my initial visit to Kamakura and Hase-dera six years ago. The impressions and concepts of the many Jizos completely captured my interest in Buddhism-an interest I have explored in my studies at Lake Forest College and will continue in the future. I'm now looking forward to visiting Xishuangbanna this summer, to observe the annual "Closing Door Festival." My special thanks to all those who have supported and encouraged my pursuits, particularly to my family, Alicia and Janet.
