About this title


In this 32 page picture book for children ages 3 to 9, the early reader is gently introduced to the power of empathy and wise action. The story revolves around a happy and friendly sage living a peaceful life in the forest. However, when drought strikes his region, he realizes that relief must be found or many will suffer. After a long night of deep thought he arrives at an answer: a secret treasure that can be shared with all! In this vividly illustrated story, we follow in Jadhu's footsteps, witness his magical sympathy with nature and toil with him in his happy efforts to heal both village and forest.

From the Author:

     Jadhu Ram and the Thirsty Forest is a contemporary fable that embraces fundamental themes of brotherhood and service. Meant to be read aloud, it teaches by example. It educates the listener or reader in the principles of "deep ecology," empathy for the plight of others (including the animal kingdom) and generous, non-violent heroism. As access to clean drinking water threatens to become a global issue of epic proportions, the tale reminds us that love, respect for nature and for all living things is the proper approach that puts us in harmony with benevolent, long-term solutions.
     Itis a well-known fact that children seem to have an inborn affinity forheroes. But why must the hero be one who resorts to violence inorder to solve the world's problems? Where is the hero who uses his or hermysterious powers and human energies in a purely selfless and beneficent way toarrive at non-violent solutions to conflict and suffering? Wisdom traditions of east and west affirm that such men have existed and still do exist today. Asyou and your child will see, Jadhu Ram is one of their tribe.
