Back of the Book

The 101 Buddha Stories are Buddhist parables telling tales of Buddha in his previous live when he was called the Bodhisattva or Buddha-to-be. His incarnations included animals as well as human. These stories reflect the travails and experiences the Buddha had to go through to attain the Buddhahood. In format the stories are similar to the Panchatantra and lead up to a moral. But being Buddhist the stories are less matter-of-fact and carry deeply profound esoteric message. The evocative illustration compliment the lucid text making the book a must have in any library.
