The Buddha
The last page of our little book will be a collage of photographs taken from Buddha images. This is a call to action. We are collecting pictures right now. You have a favourite picture of a Buddha face, statue, monk or temple? Send it to: mailto:pictures@buddhakids.org. We can't promise when and how it will happen, however we appreciate your  help.

Siddhartha travelled near and far to find the solution. Finally he sat down under a Bodhi tree to meditate.

Under the bodhi tree
My favorite Barista Sharon and I are working on a book for little children. As a youngling I had plenty of Christian piture books with Jesus, Moses, Stephanus, St. Martin and other biblical figures. When looking at Buddhist books, you will find mostly literature that starts at the age of 10 to 12 rather than picture books or early readers. So we decided to change that. The text has been finished for a while and finally Sharon's creativity is filling the words with pictures. I'm exited.

My first Buddha Book

(Illustrations by Sharon Foong, Text by Stephan Wissel)


In the kingdom Shakya long ago there lived the beautiful prince Siddhartha.
Siddhartha married the lovely princess Yasodhara. They lived in a palace of beauty and pleasure.
When Siddhartha saw an old man, he saw the suffering and became sad.
When Siddhartha saw a sick man, he saw the suffering and became very sad.
When Siddhartha saw a dead man, he saw the suffering and became very very sad.
Siddhartha saw a monk with no hair, a yellow robe and an empty bowl. There he knew what to do.
Siddhartha vowed to save all living beings from their suffering.He left the palace to become a monk.
Siddhartha traveled near and far to  find the solution. Finally he sat down under a Bodi tree to meditate.
The evil spirit Mara appeared but could not harm or distract Siddhartha.
Siddhartha became The Buddha. He saw everything as it is and that everything is connected.
When people saw him they asked: "Are you a deity?" The Buddha replied: "No. I'm the fully awaken one".
The Buddha loves every living being. He taught many people for many years.
We call his teachings the Dharma. Through the Dharma The Buddha teaches us how to be always happy.
Many people liked The Buddha and the Dharma very much. They followed him and became his Sangha.
The Buddha send out the Sangha to tell everybody about the Dharma and how to be happy.
When you want to be happy The Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha are there for you!
