       Additional Information  
      Meru and the Magic Thread is the story of a young boy who faces the dominions of evil as he responds to a divine invitation that inevitably leads him to great responsibility. Meru's world is about to undergo a shift that will bring a great change and Meru has been chosen to deliver this message to all who live there. He carries no weapons other than the purity of his own nature as he confronts the forces of darkness that hide within the recesses of all of our souls.

    Meru wakes up one morning to find a magic button on his doorstep. He learns that it can only be sewn on with magic thread. He must make a difficult journey to the Eastern Mountain to find the Star Lady, whose spinning spiders weave the magic thread. Come with him on this journey as he faces his past and future while trying to escape the fury of the River of Reflections. Meet the wizard who attempts to steal Meru's innocence in the Forest of Forgetfulness. Travel through the Cave of Completion where Meru's faith is tested. Finally behold the Star Lady who reveals the real reason for Meru's journey.

    This story delivers a timeless message of Love, Innocence, and Faith, three qualities that inspire and sustain the human spirit. This book will be of great importance to parents who are trying to nourish these qualities in their children. We hope the story of Meru will create a wave that will gather strength as it opens the heart and mind of each person who reads it.
