Book Description: The Jātaka Tales are the Buddhist equivalent of Aesop's Fables. They are morality stories. In the Buddhist cultures of that time, these were the stories that children grew up hearing. They were the popular entertainment of their time. Families would gather together in the evening after the day's work was done and share these tales. And it is from these stories that people learned about the standards of conduct for followers of the Buddha.Like Aesop's Fables, the main characters in these stories can be a king, a merchant, a craftsperson, or an animal. This collection contains stories 51-100 of the 547 total stories. Jātaka 68 tells the lovely story about the Buddha and an old couple who - seemingly confused - turn out to have been his parents in many previous lives. Jātaka 72 brings back the Buddha's nemesis - Devadatta - in a story about ingratitude. The Mud Pie Friends - Jātaka 83 - tells a touching story about the great benefactor Anāthapiṇḍika and his childhood friend with whom he made mud pies.A common theme of the Buddha's was the folly of superstition. This is the main topic of Jātakas 87 and 97. And in Jātaka 76 we hear the profound message of how by caring for our own bodies and minds, we also care for others.In all these stories represent the breadth the human experience. What we see is that in 2500 years, the spectrum of humanity has not changed at all.

Book Description: The Jatakas, or birth-stories, form one of Buddhism's sacred books. They relate the adventures of the Buddha in his former existences. Carved railings around the relic shrines of Sanchi in Madhya Pradesh and Amaravati in Andhra Pradesh indicate that the birth-stories were widely known in the third century B.C. These Jataka Tales contain deep truths, and are calculated to impress lessons of great moral beauty. Tales like The Merchant of Seri, who gave up all that he had in exchange for a golden dish, embodies much the same idea as the New Testament's parable of the priceless pearl. The Tale of the Measures of Rice illustrates the importance of a true estimate of values. The Tale of the Banyan Deer, which offered its life to save a roe and her young, illustrates self-sacrifice of the noblest sort. The Tale of the Sandy Road is one of the finest in the collection. While some of the stories are based in Buddhist ideology, many are age-old fables, the flotsam and jetsam of folk-lore that have appeared under various guises throughout the centuries. At times they have been used merely as merry tales, and at other times they're used as literature, as by Chaucer, who unwittingly puts a Jataka story into the mouth of his Pardoner when he tells the tale of The Ryotoures Three. Captivate yourself with the charm of these 18 Jataka Tales. Let their quaint humour and gentle earnestness teach you the wholesome lessons of the Buddhist ideology, among them the duty of kindness to animals. 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to raising funds for Phaung Daw Oo Monastic Education High School in Mandalay, Myanmar
