Not currently in stock, but we are happy to backorder and notify you when it arrives.
“What happens when our wish comes true, and we receive our doll? We play with it but soon enough, we wish for a shiny ball!”
Buddha did not want people to suffer. He reminds us that desire leads to suffering. He encouraged us to think of the path to peace as lying within ourselves.
This board book Peace With Buddha will help children recognize the values of wanting less, finding peace and connecting with their inner selves.
The Learning TO BE series is a creative way to introduce your little ones to big values in an engaging manner. Written in simple text and magical verse, this series is perfect to read aloud to toddlers (2-4 year olds) and excellent for beginning readers (4-8 year olds).
Look for other titles in this series: Kindness with Mahavira and Service with Guru Nanak.
