Buddhist Parables contains more than two hundred similes, allegories, parables, fables and other anecdotes found in the Pali Buddhist texts and said to have been employed, either by the Buddha himself or by his followers to convey religious and ethical lessons and the lessons of common sense. Much of the material has been translated into English for the first time. The book is a collection of the teachings of the Buddha and his followers, by discourses and examples, and a collection of good stories - all in one. It contains much that will interest children; it also contains much that will puzzle the profoundest philosopher.
