186 pages. "These stories sparkle with sagacious humor as they tell of fortunes won and lost, magical animals, accord with nature, and often a miraculous happy ending. A valuable source of artfully told tales." - Library journal. This charming collection of authentic Tibetan folklore re?ects the enduring wisdom, engaging humour, and unique culture of the people of the legendary Land of Snows. The Tibetans’ love of storytelling is reflected in these folk narratives, including: The Tibetan myth of creation, and stories of the origin of important deities and ancient rulers. Some of the famous Jataka tales, stories of former lives of the Buddha, illustrating his practical wisdom and universal compassion. Stories of the release of a hero from animal form, reminiscent of Western fables such as “The Frog Prince.” The most popular of all the time-honoured legends of Tibet, the great epic of King Gesar of Ling, the warrior who became a national hero. Here, the story of his birth and ascension to sovereignty are presented. To this day, Gesar symbolizes the hope of Tibetans that their country will know the rule of a just leader in a free realm once again. Parables, proverbs, verses, and riddles. Gleaned from an ancient oral tradition, these imaginative, colourful, and wisdom-filled tales will delight children and adults alike.
