Stories From The Jatakas
Jataka Tales are a collection of ancient Buddhist stories that recount the previous lives of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. These tales are believed to teach moral and ethical lessons, illustrating the virtues of compassion, generosity, honesty, and other qualities. Each Jataka tale typically follows a similar narrative structure, featuring the Buddha in different animal or human forms. The Jataka stories often involve animals as main characters, with each animal representing certain human qualities or behaviors. The tales depict moral dilemmas, challenges, and examples of virtuous behavior that offer guidance for leading a righteous life. This is an Amar Chitra Katha collection of short stories.
