I think this is the first Buddhist picture book I've read and it's really beautiful -- love the story and the message. Having read several of Stephen's books and after attending one of his and Ondrea's workshops many years ago, I was delighted to discover his last book, Becoming Kuan Yin.
The story features universal fairytale characters such as the harsh king and father who tries to force his beautiful and virtuous daughter into marriage. She likes to spend her time quietly meditating with the creatures of the forest or having adventures with dragons and tigers. I think I would have gotten more out of this book had I'd known more about Buddhism. Did they depict the characters accurately?
Customer Reviews: After decades of Stephen Levine's devotion to compassionate service, who better to bring us the story of the transformative journey of Miao Shan becoming Kuan Yin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. I felt my own emotional armor shedding a little more with every page.
What is it supposed to be? It sometimes reads as a spiritual self-help, it often-times presents as a narrative, at other times a poetry book, and other times third-person, then unexpectedly first-person, then back to instructional - the book constantly seems to switch tense, perspective, purpose, from chapter to chapter, with loss, it seems, to any regard to an overarching cohesion. This book will have resonance for Kuan Yin's millions of followers.
