“I am happy to see books such as this one… The Dharma King clearly demonstrates the link between causes and their effect. …and [our] collective responsibility for the future of the world.”
His Holiness the 17th Karmapa
The Dharma King
Like the book Nine and a Half Fingers, this is a Tibetan folk tale about karma. It is written and illustrated to capture the attention of boys.
They will enjoy the phantasmagorical illustrations, based on Thangka art done by Sonam, a young Tibetan refugee and professionally trained Thangka painter.
In the back of the book, readers will learn of Sonam’s life in Tibet and his heroic escape over the Himalayas.
