Panchatantra The Jackal and the war drum and other stories
Panchatantra The Jackal and the war drum and other stories
Description
The original text of the Panchatantra in Sanskrit was probably written about 200 B. C. by a great Hindu scholar, Pandit Vishnu Sharma. But some of the tales themselves must be much older, their origin going back to the period of the Vedas and the Upanishads (1500 B.C. to 500 B. C.). In course of time, travellers took these stories with them to Persia and Arabia and finally, through Greece, they reached Europe. So far the Panchatantra has been translated into 50 or more languages of the world.

It attempts to teach us, how to understand people, how to choose reliable and trustworthy friends, how to meet difficulties and solve problems through tact and wisdom, and how to live in peace and harmony in the face of hypocrisy, deceit and many pitfalls in life.

The Panchatantra is woven round the frame of a tale of a king who entrusts his three dull sons to a learned man, a Brahman called Pandit Vishnu Sharma, to enlighten their minds within six months. The Brahman promises to educate them and takes them to his 'ashrama' (hermitage). There he recites to them his specially composed tales divided into five tantras (literally, five systems) on how to deal with people in life.

Difficult subjects like philosophy, psychology, politics, music, astronomy, human relations, etc. are discussed in the Panchatantra in a simple and yet elegant style. This is exactly what Pandit Vishnu Sharma had in mind (to give knowledge to the prince).

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
