Watch Live on Facebook
The Seed of Compassion, written by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate His Holiness the Dalai Lama, addresses children directly, sharing lessons of peace and compassion, told through stories from his own childhood. 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 great 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. With simple, powerful text, the Dalai Lama shares the universal teachings of treating one another with compassion, which Bao Luu illustrates beautifully in vibrant color. In an increasingly confusing world, The Seed of Compassion offers guidance and encouragement on how we all might bring more kindness to it.
Join us for a special virtual reading and meditation session hosted by Archimedes Bibiano. Children will explore themes related to kindness and compassion, interfaith understanding, respect for the environment, and, above all, world peace.
