We must be kind to ourselves, even if we are children (but this is true for adults, too). In a fast-paced world like the one we live in, it is not easy to maintain the peace of mind necessary to live our days happily. However, this becomes possible if we train our minds to be strong. How do we do it? Let's read together the advice that Ziji Rinpoche gives to her young readers in Rest Is Best! Best Is Rest! Thanks to her invitation to practice a strong mind, you will live a happier and more peaceful life.
I have read many books for adult readers that teach them the importance of being calm and kind, so I know how valuable these concepts are. However, I had never found a book that explained them to children before reading Rest Is Best! Best Is Rest! This is the reason why this book immediately caught my attention. Learning such important values while readers are still very young will help them develop a calm and strong mind more quickly, and the benefits they will have throughout their life will be priceless. Rinpoche gave her young readers a very precious gift, and we all should be grateful to her. Needless to say, I am thrilled with Rest Is Best! Best Is Rest!, and I highly recommend it to all parents who care about their children's future. Books like this will change for the better the lives of those lucky enough to read them.
