Stories the Buddha Told: great Buddhist stories
Throughout his life and when it was appropriate the Buddha told amusing and clever stories to illustrated his teachings. He did not sum up each story with a 'moral', the stories themselves did that. But the Buddha used these stories to reveal to the world the values he held most dear - honesty, kindness, courage, generosity and worldly wisdom. Stories the Buddha Told, the third volume in Great Buddhist stories, will charm and challenge the reader of today with the wit and wisdom of the man who told them.
