Description
From the Jacket:

The story of King Udayana and Princess Vasavadatta was very well known in ancient India. This popular story was re-echoed in Pali and Prakrit literature. In Dhamma-pada-atthakatha (5th Century AD), on which the first story in this special issue is based, we get an elaborate account of the story of Vasavadatta and Udayana.

King Kusha and The Acrobat are stories included in the Pali canon.

Jataka tales are based on the folklore, legends and ballads of ancient India. We cannot assign a definite date to them. Taking into account archaeological and literary evidence, it appears that they were compiled in the period third century BC to fifth century AD. They give us invaluable information about ancient Indian civilization, culture and philosophy.

The Jataka stories have been very popular in the Buddhist world. These stories have not only been translated into almost all the languages closely related to Buddhism - Chinese, Tibetan, Sinhalese, Burmese, Japanese - but also into many modern European languages. These stories have also been depicted in the paintings and sculptures of ancient India and other Buddhist countries. Sanchi, Bharhut, Amaravati and Ajanta in India, Borobundur in Java, Pegan in Burma and Sukhodaya in Thailand bear testimony to the popularity of these tales.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
