Jataka Tales

Description These "Jataka" tales were the parables told to the peasants in simple language by the holy prophet (Lord Buddha) in order to help them to grasp the wisdom of his teachings. These fables have come down to us through hundreds of years and continue to entertain us even now. They are equivalents of ancient Greek fables of Aesop. The genius who created these tales is indeed fabulous and profound. These are packed capsules of Indian wisdom and philosophy. Taken together, these tales cover the whole spectrum of life. The translation from Buddhist Pali script is commendable. It keeps the colloquial and conversational style of the original intact while translating these tales into English. The easiest and the most appropriate English equivalents have used for the Pali words. The whole translation reads smoothly and with spontaneity[edit]
