Description
 
Tonight I Met a Deva, an Angel of Love tells a timeless and inspiring story delivered by a Deva, an Angel of love from Tusita, the celestial realm from the Buddhist tradition, the heaven where Maitreya, Buddha-to-be, resides. Through flowing, rhyming verses the Deva has a heartfelt conversation with a child, revealing the simple essence of Buddha's Teachings: The Four Noble Truths. In few words, she reveals the true nature of life, the causes of strife, the freedom from it, and the path of living with ethical and mindful intelligence, in the language of children.

This simple, yet captivating story, written for ages 7 to 12 years old, and older, is to soften the spirit, open the heart, and create an atmosphere of joy, rest and wonderment. It is designed to nurture seeds of hope and wisdom, and to evoke an intimate discussion between parent and child on the ever-evolving meaning and significance of the Buddha's Four Noble Truths, over years to come. Drawing from classical Buddhism, the story is universal in meaning, as the author, a former Buddhist monk, encourages young people, each in their own way, to discover truth, love and freedom, each and every day.

This book provides a colorful beacon of light to the young, in a world of challenges.
