In the Foreword to "Soul Graffiti: Stories That Inspire Action," His Holiness the Dalai Lama offers words on cultivating kindness

– Soul Graffiti LLC received today praise from the Tibetan spiritual leader and Nobel Peace Prize winner, His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In a letter to Dr. Joe Powers, Founder of Soul Graffiti, the Dalai Lama enclosed a foreword for the revised edition of the forthcoming book, entitled, “Soul Graffiti: Stories That Inspire Action” (ISBN 097494580). This book of inspirational stories of kindness is currently being reviewed by several publishers and will likely be published in the summer of 2005.

In his foreword to the book, the Dalai Lama shares his thoughts on cultivating a sense of compassion and kindness for all humans. “In trying to contribute to creating a better world, a kind heart is valuable because it is the source of happiness for both oneself and others,” he writes. "'Soul Graffiti: Stories that Inspire Action” is a collection of stories that reveal the value of kindness. Down the ages, stories have been a source of inspiration to cultivate positive values and put them into action. However, because it is important that there are also tales that place such values in a contemporary context, I believe Dr. Joe Powers has done a great service in putting this compilation together.”

Since it’s launch on June 22, 2003, Soul Graffiti has attracted more than one million hits to its website from visitors in nearly 70 countries around the globe including Australia, Canada, Estonia, Finland, Israel, Italy, Hungary, Japan, Nepal, New Zealand, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, and the United States.
