The Jataka stories or birth legends of the Buddha were widely known in the third century B.C. Written originally in Pali they contain 537 birth stories of the Buddha's former lives. The foremost interest of these legends lies in their relation to folklore giving a vivid picture of the social life and customs of ancient India. Often attributed to the Lore Buddha, The preservation of these tales is the result of the hard work of those of his followers who used them to instruct the laymen into the mysteries of the world teacher. Often full of pathos, they show the way through the travails that humankind has to face while passing through different stages of their existence. The Monkey and the Crocodile, The Ox who won the Forfeit, and The Banyan Deer are Just some of the delightful stories in this short collection. Printed Pages: 61.
