Description
About The Book:

This is a collection of stories presented with charming simplicity by Bhikshu Chaman Lal-an author, lecturer, world traveler and a missionary of peace. The stories presented in this book are full of wisdom. They tell us what we can learn from nature and what tolerance and love can bring to humanity. Every story imparts certain useful lesson and invests every reader with indomitable courage.

Preface

Ernest, Rhys in his introduction to the Fables, Aesop and Others justly remarks “We have to admit that the best fables did I not begin with Aesop or in Greece at all. We have, in fact, to go East and look into India and burrow in the 'tales within tales’ of Hitopadesa to get an idea how old the antiquity of the fables actually is."

When God made the world, He gave many virtues to different nations. To India He gave wisdom as a special gift. The Upanishads are India's books of wisdom. The stories presented in a this book are full of wisdom. They illustrate what miracles can be — wrought with faith in God. They tell us what we can team from nature, what tolerance and love can bring to humanity. Every I story is full of lessons. In these days of fear and atomic madness stories of faith in God would invest every reader with; indomitable courage.

I had originally collected and translated some of these stories for my own guidance, since a monk is one who tries to improve a himself. I claim no credit: I have a simply performed the task of at bee that collects honey from fragrant flowers.

I shall be happy if this publication can help even a few thousand young, people to learn some lessons in wisdom to become God-fearing ideal citizens of the world.

I deem it my duty to thank there distinguished authors or publishers whose stories I have included in this collection. I am specially thankful for the permission to reproduce stories translated from the Bhagavata by Swami Prabhavananda of Vedanta Society of Southern California.

I just got the package delivered. The books look in good condition from outside. Thanks again. It is always a pleasure doing business with you.
Shambhu, Brooklyn
I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
