Religions have always told stories to their followers to teach them lessons about life. Now comes a book that collects the most enjoyable and inspiring of these fables from the greatest gurus and texts of the Hindu tradition. Ranging from the charming stories of the Panchatantra to a fable told by Tulsidas to Meera Bai, a story about marriage from the puranas to one of Sai Baba’s favourite parables, this collection of stories is full of laughter and wisdom, beauty and thoughts of Sai Baba, Sri Ramana Maharishi, Swami Vivekananda, Rishi Yajnavalkya, Sri Chaitanya, Adi Shankara, Janabai, Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Sivananda.
