The first Chitra Katha in this volume is on the life of Buddha. He refused to subscribe to the caste system which had ceased to be Dharma and had become a tool of oppression.

The first Chitra Katha in this volume is on the life of Buddha. He refused to subscribe to the caste system which had ceased to be Dharma and had become a tool of oppression. He would not accept the power-drunk priests as sole agents of God. He questioned the authority of the Vedas. And he was convinced that penance and meditation as mere rituals without the accompanying sincerity and contemplation were futile. The second Chitra Katha in this Pancharatna issue, Angulimala, is from the Buddhist text, Paramatthadipani of Dhammapala. The story of Amrapali is told in the Maha-Parinibbana Sutta and in Malasarvastivadas. The garden which Amrapali gave up to Lord Buddha was still in existence when Fa-Hien visited India during the Gupta age. Upagupta was a disciple of Buddha. For him, ahimsa(non-violence) did not merely mean desisting from violence but doing positive good and showing compassion. When Vasavadatta was shunned by society and had nowhere to go, Upagupta took her to his hermitage. While adapting this story for our Amar Chitra Katha, we have omitted a few gruesome details. King Kusha and the Acrobat are stories included in the Pali canon.
