Description
Preface

‘Jataka Tales’ or ‘Buddhistic Tales’ relate to stories of the previous births of Lord Buddha. Lord Buddha having attained ‘Wisdom’ or ‘All Knowingness’ or after having had ‘Self-Realisation’ became capable of seeing through his previous births. He narrated these stories to his disciples, which became a source of learning social and moral values of life.

These are tales which had been told some more than two thousand years ago, aimed at uplifting people socially and morally. And one can expect t to learn only good things from the lives of saints. For this simple reason we have made a judicious selection of such stories which may inculcate sublime virtues in the lives of our young readers.

A few other stories, not necessarily told by Lord Buddha, not necessarily related to his previous births, have also been included in this book for an added reading, designed to teach, and intended to convey instructions and information as well as pleasure and entertainment.

We, the publishers groups, think, it is necessary for such books—meant for our young readers—to be didactic.

Now the responsibility lies with our young readers to tell us how successful we have been in our attempt.

Testimonials

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.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.

Your products are uncommon yet have advanced my knowledge and devotion to Sanatana Dharma. Also, they are reasonably priced and ship quickly. Thank you for all you do.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.
Shankar, UK
The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
