A collaboration between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and award-winning author and illustrator Patrick McDonnell.
A knock on the door of the Dalai Lama’s residence in Dharamsala, India. His Holiness interrupts his morning meditation to greet a Giant Panda who has travelled many miles to see him. He welcomes him as his friend and together they walk through the forests, discussing things great and small…
An enchanting picture book for adults, with text by His Holiness the Dalai Lama accompanied by Patrick McDonnell’s spare, whimsical, joy-inducing drawings, Heart to Heart delivers an urgent and inspiring call to heal our relationship with the natural world while offering a positive message of hope for “this beautiful blue planet, our only home”.
The Dalai Lama urges us to join in a “compassionate revolution” and practise greater kindness and understanding not only towards our fellow humans but towards all sentient beings large and small, reminding us that “we are indeed all members of a single family, sharing one little house” and that our own individual well-being is intimately connected with that of all others and with the environment.
