The Jataka Tales are stories from the Buddha’s previous lives. In one life the Buddha was born as a deer, in another a parrot, in yet another a Swan King and even as an extraordinary pony! In whatever form he took birth, he always reflected qualities of a compassionate noble soul…. Between the two brothers in ‘A Pouch of Thousand Coins’ he was the generous one and among the three friends in ‘A Lotus Garland’ he was the truthful one. The present collection contains fifteen interesting stories, selected out of the eternal treasure of five hundred forty seven Jataka Tales.
