My name is Buddha Bear. Ever since I was a super small bear, I dreamed of traveling the world. At first it was pretty scary traveling alone. Now I’m not afraid of anything!
I always remember to help people with their problems. When I get frustrated, I try to remember to breathe and stay calm. I’m always grateful when I have food to eat, especially my favorite berries. And I always take time to appreciate nature, because that always makes me feel happy!
Even though I’m still a little bear, my mind is pretty strong. Everyday I’m learning how to become more content, compassionate, and in control of my thoughts. Because one day, I’m going to become enlightened! That’s why my name’s Buddha Bear!

Buddha Bear's Enlightenment Coloring Book is a 21 day course based on our popular self guided meditation journal, ”Everyday Enlightenment: Beginnings.” Although it is recommended for kids ages 5 to 12, this doesn’t mean teens and adults can’t enjoy it and benifit from it as well! It has been carefully created to foster positive emotional growth through concepts of compassion, gratitude and love. This is achieved through the daily theme, a question of self reflection, and most importantly, the adventures of Buddha Bear!
