Hitopadesha Choice of Friends and other Stories
Hitopadesha Choice of Friends and other Stories
Description
Panchatantra was written by Pandit Vishnu Sharma between the second and third centuries B.C. but Hitopadesha came much later. Narayana, the author of Hitopadesha, drew most of his material from Panchatantra. He reconstructed the first three tantras and added about fifteen new tales. The raison d'etre of both books remains the same.

A certain Indian king was perturbed that his three sons were averse to any kind of learning. Taking the advice of his counselors, the king sends the princes to one Vishnu Sharma, who was not only a learned Brahmin but was also a remarkable teacher. Within a short period of six months, the pandit instructs the princes in the art of politics and wordly wisdom, by telling them stories about bird, beast and man. Each character in his stories becomes a vehicle of some precept, either directly or indirectly.

In Panchatantra these stories are divided into five books. Narayana's work, however, has only four- Mitralabha, Suhridbheda, Vigraha and Sandhi. Our Amar Chitra Katha has been adapted from the first book-Mitralabha or winning of Friends.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
