“I would like to thank you and all those who supported you in bringing to life the story of Mrigari the hunter. Your unique storytelling of this ancient tale is very dear to my heart. The message of The Peaceable Forest takes its place among the many steps an individual or a nation must take for a progressive path toward a peaceful and happy life. Expressing love to all innocent living beings is the culture of ALOHA; it heals and refines the spirit, soaring to our grand ideal. I have not a single doubt that your book will have a wonderful influence, like a balm, on a troubled heart for many generations to come. Thank you.”

–Kavi Noland, minister, Cultured Spirit Educational Institute of the Healing Arts

“The combination of the art and text is a veritable cinematic experience.”

“The artist has a flare for characterizing the animals and the hunter through uncanny facial expressions of fear, hope, grief, and relief. The combination of the art and text is a veritable cinematic experience. Children will be looking at the pictures over and over again as they discover the variety of moods and emotions present within each of them.”

–David Shapiro (Nrsimhananda dasa), Screenwriter, Film Producer

“A powerful story with illustrations that enliven and capture my imagination…”

“A beautiful parable of anger and redemption!!! Just enough suspense to be a real page-turner, not so much as to frighten a child… love that the first reference is to taking care of the mother. And the message of “willingness”, the magic of “willingness” … part of the bond between choice and intention. A powerful story with illustrations that enliven and capture my imagination… thanks for sharing your work and your self…”

–Lauren Teller, Textile Artist

“a beautiful book that teaches us to value all life”

“This is a beautiful book that teaches us to value all life, not just human life. Animals today are being treated as commodities but there are negative consequences to this view as Mrigari the hunter finds out. Like Mrigari, let us become sensitive to the pain and anguish of animals.”

–Dr. Tanmay Lele, Associate Professor, Chemical Engineering, University of Florida

“Kosa has again come up with a beautifully illustrated story which leads us out of the woods of our own unconsciousness and brings us in touch with the pulsing heart, not only of humanity, but of all sentient life. If parents the world over would take a few minutes to read this to their young children, and adopt its teaching, we would have a healthier and happier world.”
