One of today’s most inspiring world leaders was once an ordinary child named Lhamo Thondup. In a small village in Tibet, his mother was his first teacher of compassion. In everyday moments from his childhood, young readers begin to see that important lessons are all around us, and that they, too, can grow to truly understand them, reads the post.

With simple, powerful text, the Dalai Lama shares the universal teachings of treating one another with compassion, which Bao Luu, a Vietnamese artist living in the US, illustrates beautifully in vibrant colours.
In an increasingly confusing world, The Seed of Compassion, offers guidance and encouragement on how we all might bring more kindness to it, say the publishers.
