Description
About the Book

All living creatures die to be born again, so the Hindus believe, Siddhartha, who become the Buddha, was no exception. It is believed that several lifetimes as a Bodhisattva go into the making of Buddha, the Enlightened One. The Bodhisattva is one, who by performing virtuous, kind and intelligent acts, aspires to become a Buddha. The Bodhisattva comes in many forms-man, monkey, deer elephant, lion. Whatever his mortal body, he spreads the message of justice and wisdom, tempered with compassion.

This wisdom or right thinking and right living, is preserved in the Jataka tales, a collection 550 stories included in the Pali canon, and are based on the ballads, legend and folklore ancient India. The stories provide interesting insights into the civilisation, culture and philosophy of that time.

The five volumes in this Amar Chita Katha have animals playing the key roles. While Bird Stories deals with issues of friendship, greed and loyalty, Deer Stories recounts six impressionable anecdotes with the deer as the central character. Caution, trust and kindness are some of the virtues that are effortlessly conveyed through these fascinating tales.

The three teles in Elephant Stories lucidly explain the futility of vices like greed, jealousy and pride and the victory of humility, trust and loyalty with the elephant playing the central role throughout.

Monkey Stories uses simple analogies with monkeys as the main characters, and teaches many valuable lessons in wisdom and common sense. Jackal Stories enumerates the multiple adventures of this wily creature who, at times, succeeds in his tricks but at others fails miserably in his cunning schemes.

These tales will keep you amused, while never failing to emphasize the ultimate triumph of good over evil.

Testimonials

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
