        Captain Buddhadasa works on board cargo ships that visit ports around the world, including SCI's Port Newark Center several years ago, where a photographer took his picture. SCI later featured this photograph on a poster about seafarers' contributions to daily life. It just so happens that when Captain Buddhadasa recently visited SCI's Bay Area Center, Director Adrienne Yee recognized the "uncanny resemblance" and insisted on a side-by-side comparison.
