The journey of the Little Buddha began when Claus Mikosch and his four-year-old daughter used to go walking near a Buddhist temple, and she asked him questions about the Buddha. When Claus had the idea to collect their conversations, the Little Buddha was born. It is not a book about THE Buddha or about Buddhism. It is instead the story of a pretty normal Buddha who, tired of meditating beneath his Bodhi tree, embarks upon a journey. Inspired by Claus' travels to India, The Little Buddha: Looking for Love is the second book in the series: a universal tale of the human need to love and be loved. It carries the reader on a mindful journey in which the Little Buddha encounters a series of people wrestling with matters of the heart, meditates on love in its many forms, and unlocks the secret of love at the heart of life.
