Tibet a land of mystery and mysticism has for centuries hidden itself from the outside world. For this reason Tibetan folktales have always attracted a vast audience. Many of these tales steeped in mystical imagery give the fertile imagination plenty of scope to work. Garnered from wandering herdsmen of the trans-Himalayan regions of Tibet as they sat around their campfires at night these tales delve deep into the traditional psyche of the Tibetan people. Shelton has selected these stories very carefully so that they may reflect the true culture of the Tibetan people. The fifty stories contained in this book will fascinate and entertain you time and time again. Whether you are old or young you may relate to these tales and derive your own meanings for each one. As with all eastern tales Tibetab folk tales have deeper meanings that may not be immediately understood and thus one may ponder over each tale to look for a deeper and hidden meaning. As with the Jataka tales associated with the Buddha and his teachings tales from Tibet are also adaptations of the same style and often the communications between men and animals forms the basis for these stories. Printed Pages: 192.
