Description About the author
 
If Dr. Seuss were drawing on classical Buddhist texts for inspiration, this is what he'd write--with playful yet traditional illustrations by the award-winning artist behind The Empty Pot, whose books have sold half a million copies. Destined to be a classic.

An instant classic, this book will help children (and their parents) learn patience and to see the good in everyone--including themselves! It will also help children meet difficult circumstances, such as being sick, doing chores, and not getting everything they want--and help them overcome low self-esteem and negative self-talk. I See You, Buddha is based on a chapter in the Lotus Sutra, one of the most influential Buddhist texts worldwide--a classical scripture that has inspired a whole genre of works, especially in Japan, known as Lotus Literature. The Lotus Sutra teaches the way of the bodhisattva--a being engaged in compassionate, enlightened activity in the service of all--by offering examples of what this activity might look like in the world. One such model in the text is Bodhisattva Never Disrespectful (or Never Disparaging), who, despite troubling encounters with and even harsh treatment from others, bows down respectfully to everyone, recognizing their Buddha nature and honoring their own journeys along the bodhisattva path to enlightenment--whether they know they're future buddhas or not!
I See You, Buddha!, Josh Bartok, Wisdom Publications, Harddcover, 32 pp, $19.95
