"Themes of compassion, friendship, and the calming power of meditation weave through this Tibetan legend of a gentle hermit and a hungry Yeti, adapted into a children's picture book by American Tibetan Buddhist teacher and bestselling author Lama Surya Das. In this heartwarming story, a friendly old hermit faces a hairy, scary yeti. What happens next is the stuff of legends. Inspired by an authentic Tibetan teaching story, The Yeti and the Jolly Lama shows us how lovingkindness calms rage and friendship builds bridges." -- publisher
