Description: "A marvellous introductory text, well-organized and clearly written. The renditions of stories are readable and engaging." --Edward T. Gilday, Bowdoin College"A delicious repast of stories, delightfully told and intended to satisfy our narrative appetites and nourish our moral sensibilities. Drawing upon tales from the Hindu epics, the Pacatantra, Puranas, Jatakas, Nikayas, and other texts, the authors provide translations and summaries of stories illustrating fundamental Hindu and Buddhist values and attitudes....A good candidate for use in undergraduate courses in Indian religions or theintroduction to religion."--Religious Studies Review"This instructive retelling of tales from traditional Hindu and Buddhist texts introduces the reader to the popular teachings of these traditions not as abstract concepts but dressed in their original, attractive story form."--Donald K. Swearer, Swarthmore College"A brilliant success."--K.L. Seshagiri Rao, University of Virginia"A delicious repast of stories, delightfully told and intended to satisfy our narrative appetites and nourish our moral sensibilities."--Religious Studies Review"A marvellous introductory text, well-organized and clearly written.
