Description
About the Book

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

This wisdom, the wisdom of right thinking and right living, is preserved in the Jatakas stories on which the present title is based. It is a collection of 550 stories included in the Pali canon and are based on the ballads, legend and folklore of ancient India. A definite date cannot be assigned to the Jataka stories. From archaeological and literary evidence, it seems likely that they were compiled in the period between 3rd century BC and 5th century AD. The Jataka tales provides keen insights into the civilization, culture and philosophy of ancient India.

The Magic Chant narrates short and simple tales that reflect on the demerits of greed, pride and blind faith. The Giant and the Dwarf tells a story that not only highlights wit versus might and brain versus brawn, but also provides a lesson in humility and gratitude.

According to the Maha Ummagga Jataka, the Bodhisattva was once born as Aushadha Kumar who as endowed with celestial knowledge and superhuman powers. The Priceless Gem presents the third set of tales connected with Aushadha Kumar, and feature his adventures in the court of Mithila.

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.
