Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas

Tibetan Tales for Little Buddhas

Who can say what is good fortune and what is bad fortune? High in the highest mountains of the world in the country of Tibet, little Yeshi lives in a small village with his father and their horse. One morning Yeshi runs to tell his father that their horse is missing. Oh this is terrible luck...or is it? Off they go together to look for their horse and as they go, Yeshi's father chants quietly. How can his father chant at a time like this? The answer is his father chants to keep a peaceful mind. Distraught, Yeshi searches and the other villagers join in but the horse is gone. That is until the next morning when the horse appears in the meadow and has brought another horse with him? Is this good fortune or bad? The chain of events continues as we begin to learn that what seems like bad luck may actually have a very great reward at the other end of it and chanting is a powerful tool for keeping a peaceful mind as the wind blows this way and that. This is the first of three charmingly illustrated Tibetan folktales for children designed to show them the way of the Tibetan people and their beliefs. Each page has the text in the western alphabet and below the story is written in the Tibetan alphabet. The second tale teaches the art of seeing past what you fear to the beauty rather than the danger or the misunderstanding. The third teaches "Watching the breath eases the mind, then you can be gentle and kind." 64 pages Ages 6-10
