Reviews - What do customers think about Samsara Dog?

Ready your hankies  Jun 18, 2008
I cannot read this book to my daughter without weeping. We are in the habit of reading a book over and over for a month or more, and we will not be able to do so with Samsara Dog because I have such difficulty getting through it in a manner that she can understand since I always start choking up about halfway in.

In other words: I love it, sincerely, and it makes me think I may be Buddhist but not know it yet. My daughter at least thinks it's charming that I cry so much when reading books about reincarnation, dogs, and/or death. Please read this book.
Be prepared to answer questions  May 27, 2008
I purchased this book for my 10 year old grandson for Christmas. We had some great discussions about death and dying as a result of reading the book together. A week later his new brother was stillborn. You just never know when you have to start talking about death and dying with children and it gave us a great language to talk about what happened and begin the process of acceptance.
The illustrations are wonderful and the story is uplifting. It is one that children will understand more and more as time goes on because the story is easily understood at face value and then as the child grows perspective, the depth of the story becomes more apparent.
Spiritual Life of Dogs  Feb 23, 2008
This moving story may bring tears to your eyes, but not because of sadness alone. There is beauty and a sense of peace in the cycle of birth and death described here. The writing is simple and effective; the illustrations are unusually memorable.
Beauty and Power of the Natural World  Feb 13, 2008
This book is a must for your book shelf, whether you are a dog-lover or not, whether you have children or not, whether you are young or old. In our relentless pursuit of material pleasures and of more, more, more, we are becoming increasingly alienated from the power and beauty of the natural world. This book illustrates the Buddhist concepts of samsara, the cycle of birth, and nirvana, fulfillment through total selflessness. Let your tired and flagging spirits be warmed by the evocative and heart-warming story, complemented by beautiful illustrations in soft hues.
GREAT!!!!!  Sep 29, 2007
I just had the pleasure of reading this book. It is a great book for both children and grown ups. Beautiful moving story and wonderfully illustrated.
thank you
