Education in the universal values of peace, tolerance, solidarity, care and loving-kindness must start at an early age. With her book, Priya Kumari contributes to the growing need of children to learn how to live in peace and harmony with all beings and nature.
The beautifully illustrated poem is inspired by the ancient wisdom of Buddha, the enlightened one, but it spreads the universal values of ecological, social and individual peace. These values are essential for each and every one of us and for the survival of our Mother Earth.
In a very spontaneous and intriguing way the book educates the young readers in the importance of the universal values, revealing an unusual perspective of a leaf from the divine Boddhi tree. The leaf contains the whole universe in the same way like one single drop contains the whole ocean. The ocean of Buddha’s wisdom is boundless and beyond time and space. It is accessible to all, no matter of age, nationality or religion background. It can inspire our children to live a happy life in harmony with fellow beings despite their differences.
Priya Kumari invokes us all to hear the voice of the nature and our inner voice. Let us sit together with our children next to a beautiful tree, open the book and hear the echo of the Buddha’s message in the sweet voice of the magical leaf!
