The Jataka tales are a veritable treasure of Indian folklore, legend and fable. Each time these popular stories are told, they acquire a new colour and fresh dimension. Besides being entertaining, the Jataka tales give us invaluable information about ancient Indian civilization, culture and philosophy.

The Jataka tales recount the stories of the previous incarnations of Boddhisattva before he became the Buddha, or the Enlightened One. The Boddhisatva came in many forms-man, monkey, elephant, lion, deer etc. Whatever his mortal forms, in each story, the bodhisattva spread the message of justice and wisdom. The present collection includes a selection of fascinating animal tales on the theme of courage.
