Award-winning Japanese painter Rima Fujita exhibits her work internationally and is the founder of Books for Children, an organisation that produces and donates children’s books to children in need around the world.

H.H. The Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu and Betty Williams, the Nobel Peace Laureates personally gave her special recognition in 2006 at the International Peace Summit in Japan. The Dalai Lama calls her, “An Artist who creates beautiful art.” Known for her distinctive style, her works are extracted from her dreams and meditation process.

Her beautifully illustrated book “The Day the Buddha Woke Up” is the perfect way to introduce young children to the life story of the Buddha. It puts the Buddha’s enlightenment into language children can understand. It tells the story of how Siddhartha became the Buddha. His quest for understanding leads to ultimate awakening under the Bodhi tree. It poses questions infused with childlike wonder such as, “Why aren’t people happy?” and “Is true happiness possible?”
