The Seed of Compassion: Lessons from the Life and Teachings of His Holiness the Dalai Lama

Jun 5, 2020

How do we make caring choices everyday and help bring more kindness to our world?

We ask one of the most prominent world leaders, His Holiness the Dalai Lama—that’s how!

The Dalai Lama says his most important life responsibility is to help to make the world a more compassionate place to live.

In this book, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan Buddhists tells us about his childhood and his mother raising him on a diet of love. Learning about how he was recognized at the age of two to be the reincarnation of the 13th Dalai Lama, will fascinate any young reader.

The Dalai Lama shares how to cultivate seeds of compassion in ourselves. Seeds, that he believes, we all possess.

The seed of compassion is within every child.

Kids have the ability to see genuine compassion in others and to share it freely. We discover that compassion thrives in our minds. This means we can train our minds to create something positive in the world.

When the Dalai Lama reveals the mind is our superpower—I believe.

The simple and powerful text with beautiful illustrations of the Tibetan mountains and the Dalai Lama’s travels, bring his teachings to life. I felt encouraged and touched by the reminder of the many simple ways to bring more happiness to the world.

Learning to practice compassion day by day and to try again when we slip up gives me hope for the future. A future where the seed of compassion, when nurtured with love, will grow into something beyond our imaginations.

Helps with: learning about kindness, empathy and compassion, creating a peaceful world, helping others, making compassionate choices, spreading joy, mindfulness, the power of the mind, positive thinking, how to nurture compassion, and Buddhist teachings.
