A fresh modern translation of the Buddha’s ORIGINAL words for kids has never been seen before in the world. An opportunity for children and adults to have a meaningful conversation around everyday thought-provoking questions, these illustrated quotes will empower inner contemplation and build common-sense awareness. Powerful thoughts from a true master in easy-to-understand English will stimulate hearts and minds of every age. Each quote has a unique illustration, an idea nugget to invite a dialogue and a deep dive into practical life lessons about behavior, values, how to react, how not to react, how to find balance, and much more. Children Ages 5 – 11 years. Adults 12+ years.
The Buddha’s messages are practical, non-religious, compatible with any faith. Attractive images bring clarity to the his original meaning for easy understanding of advanced concepts in simple words. The illustrations clearly show the depth of the Buddha’s message for the adult, who may then unravel it for the child.
These quotes are all authentic words spoken by Shakyamuni Buddha, taken directly from ancient texts of the Pali Canon over two thousand years old. The translations are all new, adapted by Srijana and Lama D to carefully reframe them in plain English so that modern readers can fully comprehend.
We will need an illustrator. The sample images are provisional ideas. We envision a book with 36 quotes however this could change. We have almost unlimited potential quotes, allowing for selective elimination.
