Unlike many children’s books published these days, our book is not bulk printed in China. Instead, once ordered, your book copy is printed on-demand in the US and Canada, and delivered to you. This is possible thanks to Amazon’s Create Space publishing services.
TIBETAN EDITION – A BOOK FOR EVERY TIBETAN SCHOOL IN EXILE
We have given publishing rights, free of charge, to the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan government-in-exile) to translate, publish and distribute our book. As of fall 2018, every Tibetan school, library and settlement in exile will have copies of the book, translated in Tibetan. This way, Tibetan children growing up outside Tibet will be able to benefit from the H.H. the Dalai Lama’s wisdom, while learning Tibetan.
Part of the proceeds of the book sales go to Nishtha, a grassroots organization based in Dharamshala, India, H.H. the Dalai Lama’s home in exile. For more than 20 years, Nishtha has been working towards the improvement of livelihoods in local communities. Its programs focus on health, education, environment protection and women empowerment.
