All Time Favourite 'Jaatak Kathayen' recount the development of the Bodhisatta—the being destined to become the present Buddha in his final life—not just through the events of one lifetime but of hundreds.
The Jaatak Kathayen comprise one of the largest and oldest collections of stories in the world dating from the fifth century BCE to the third century CE. Generations in South and South-East Asia have grown up with these tales. This volume contains seventeen stories drawn from various ancient sources, and each story reflects one of the ten perfections—giving, restraint, renunciation, wisdom, strength, acceptance, truthfulness, resolve, loving, kindness and equanimity.
