The Banyan Deer - Praise

A Parable of Courage & Compassion

“The narrative of a deer king who lays his life on the line not only for his own people but for all creatures, this story is a tale for all ages, with many subtleties layered beneath its surface. Though this is originally a Buddhist story, the text does well regardless of belief system (or lack thereof). The Banyan Deer is a welcome addition to any collection.”—Elephant Journal

The Banyan Deer shows that the lives of all living beings are equally important.”—His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

“A sweet and sensitive story of courage, sacrifice and kindness.”—Dan Millman, author of The Way of the Peaceful Warrior
