the story…

Aya is a curious, busy little panda who delights in searching for beautiful things to see and delicious foods to eat. While climbing the bamboo in her forest home, she notices a beautiful place in the distance and decides she must travel to see it. Along the way, Aya’s curiosity helps her to become friends with a kind Buddhist monk who encourages her to stop her busyness long enough to notice another beautiful place, the one inside of her heart.
