Originally created to complement the curriculum of the Blue Lion preschool in Singapore, which was opened under the auspices of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche late last year, the Blue Lion album has been entertaining and educating children right across the world.
The Blue Lion songbook includes the lyrics to all 15 songs accompanied by the delightful illustrations by author and artist Alicja Zmigrodzka, whose other titles such as “Little Hero” and the ever popular 21 Taras colouring book can be found here.
Having sold out our first print run, Blue Lion songbook softcover picture book is now back in stock, so if you have not got hold of a copy yet, now is the perfect moment!

The teachings of The Buddha are timeless, but we are not!
Every generation and society has their own special circumstances which govern how we live and learn. So, while the timeless teachings remain as fresh and current as ever, the method of delivery has changed over the millennia.
Dharma Kids Collective strives to bring ancient wisdom to this generation of children in ways that they find entertaining and relevant.
We are delighted to present the first video in the series from our trusted partner Funfetti_art: Four Noble Truths.
What an auspicious place to begin!
Funfetti Art are also known for their posters and joyfully illustrated children’s books which are available in many languages. Click here to find out more.
Stay well and safe. Kind regards, Simon Thomas: Director, Dharma Kids Collective.

Dear Friends, Funny story! In order to celebrate today’s global launch of the Blue Lion album – Buddhist songs for every child, I prepared this short video from a clip which Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche sent to the creators of the book Little Hero. A few days ago, I put it on YouTube for my global collaborators to check. I didn’t really expect anybody else would notice, so I failed to make it private at first. After a couple of days, I noticed that it was suddenly getting plenty of views, so it looks like I leaked my own video by mistake! So, you may well have seen it by now even though this was supposed to be the premier. I watched it dozens of times while I was editing and it still stayed so fresh and fun. Thank you so much Rinpoche!
Artists Unite! Following up on Rinpoche’s suggestion, a group of students have created a modern children’s book named Little Hero, which delivers Shantideva’s timeless messages in catchy, child-friendly verse along with colourful and entrancing illustrations. Thanks to a generous grant from Khyentse Foundation, this delightful volume is available in English, Spanish, French, Polish, German, Italian and Russian! Click here for more details.
FYI the Blue Lion album (Buddhist songs for every child) is now live! You can hear it on Spotify and all the usual channels or better still click here to get your copy now and you can name your own price! thanks so much to you all for your ongoing support.
