    Although first published in 1922 in an era of premature understanding of Buddhism this nonetheless is a treasure trove of Buddhist similes allegories parables fables and other illustrative stories and anecdotes found in the Pali Buddhist texts They convey teachings of the Buddha himself or of some of his followers for the purpose of conveying spiritual moral and common sense lessons This volume was the first time many of these appeared in English Most are drawn from the compendium of Jataka Tales texts describing the previous lives of the Buddha or that person who would later become the Future Buddha There's the parable of The Grateful Elephant and Grateful animals and ungrateful man There are other stories with titles Partridge monkey and elephant; The hawk; Snake charm; Dragon Jewel neck; and the classic tale everyone still refers to Blind Men and the ElephantIncluded are also many excerpts from the Milindapanha an early Buddhist text recording an extended dialogue between the Graeco Bactrian King Menander and the Buddhist sage Nagasena reputedly to have taken place in around 200 BCE Stories and tales from other great civilizations of the world such as India and China can both be perplexing and familiar perplexing in that they're not only from ancient times but from cultures far removed from our own; familiar in that one sees universal concerns and wisdom expressed across cultures
