A Tibetan woodcutter dreams of exploring the world, but is too busy with his life to ever leave his valley. After he dies, he is taken on a journey through the cosmos and all the places on Earth as he makes choices that lead him to a new life. First published as part of the debut list for Barefoot Books in 1993, this gentle and inspiring look at life after death is just as relevant today.
Judy B. says:
"This delightful story tells of a woodcutter in Tibet who dreams of visiting other countries, other worlds.
When he dies, he is given a choice of the body and soul that he would like to inhabit, and the place to live, and he is reminded of all of his dreams and heart's desires.
His most lovely and interesting choice is at the end of the story.
Although this story is based on Tibetan teachings, it resonates with all readers because it encourages us to make choices, not to fear change, and to be mindful of the life that we live."
