A Treasury of Wise Action: Jataka Tales of Compassion and Wisdom

The folktales in this collection have been beloved by millions of people, young and old, in India and Asia for more than 2,500 years. Through the actions of heroic animals and human beings, these stories celebrate the power of compassion, love, wisdom, and kindness. They teach that everything we do profoundly affects the quality of our lives. Selfish words and deeds bring unhappiness to us and to those around us while virtuous actions untainted by personal concerns give rise to goodness of such power that it uplifts all forms of life.

First told by the Buddha to clarify which attitudes and actions develop compassion and wisdom, these stories have been carried down through the centuries, retaining their popularity as vehicles for demonstrating the boundless benefit of positive thought and action. While based on traditional accounts, the stories in this collection have been adapted for the children of today.
