BUDDHIST TALES: STORIES FROM INDIA, JAPAN, CHINA AND TIBET
Thank you for your nice comments about The Mountains of Tibet.
Today I am pleased to suggest you another book that will inspire everyone who is interested in Buddhist ideas and satisfy anyone who loves a good story: Buddhist Tales.
The whole family can explore the wisdom and compassion of Buddhist teaching through these warm and humorous stories from India, China, Japan and Tibet.
Specially compiled for children, this collection illustrates elements of Buddhist. Retold by Sherab Chödzin and Alexandra Kohn, and illustrated by Marie Cameron, Buddhist Tales is a beautiful book edited by Barefoot Books for thought-provoking bedtime reading.
The tales can be enjoyed as exciting adventures, with fun Zen anecdotes dividing the longer stories.
They also let young readers explore concepts such as generosity, compassion and life after death, as well as reminding us of the limits of self-importance and the value of a down-to-earth sense of humour.
The Buddha taught that life is like a dream, yet real.
This idea is playfully explored in numerous light-hearted tales from the rich folk traditions of Asia.
You can read this book with your children while listening to some Buddhist chants and peace music.
Wishing you all that this book will transport you into another world of englihtenment and discovery!
