One day the old monk tells the boy, "Buddha is in the garden!" and the boy, rapt with the prospect, runs through the gate.

In the moving conclusion, the boy discovers the true nature of enlightenment, to the surprise of the monks returning from abroad.

The man we call the Buddha was born as Siddhartha in Nepal around 563 b.c. to the king and queen of Shakya. After his birth, a great seer decreed that the baby would be holy, and early on Siddhartha exhibited great intelligence and empathy. His father wanted him to become king, not a holy man, but Siddhartha was not satisfied by his pampered life, and was moved by the hardships of the commoners. Despite his father's wishes, Siddhartha ultimately left behind his kingdom and all his worldly possessions in his search for enlightenment.

This biography focuses on the childhood of the Buddha: a man with a fascinating history and an enormous contemporary following.

Buddhist Animal Wisdom Stories
By: Mark W. McGinnis

Around the beginning of the common era, Indian Buddhists began to collect fables, or jataka tales, illuminating various human virtues and foiblesùfrom kindness, cooperation, loyalty and self-discipline on the one hand to greed, pride, foolishness, and treachery on the other. Instead of populating these stories with people, they cast the animals of their immediate environment in the leading rolesùwhich may have given the tales a universal appeal that helped them travel around the world, surfacing in the Middle East as 'sop's fables and in various other guises throughout East and Southeast Asia, Africa, Russia, and Europe.

From the tale of the clever monkey outwidding a hungry crocodile to that of a bird and turtle rescuing a friend, the six amusing parables told by the Buddha will introduce young readers to the famous cycle of fables in Buddhist literature known as the Jatakas, or birth stories, which Buddha originally told to his disciples to illustrate his teachings.
