Description
 
The Jatakas refer to a voluminous body of literature native to India concerning the previous births of the Buddha. These are the stories that tell about the previous lives of the Buddha, in both human and animal form. The future Buddha may appear in them as a king, an outcast, a god, an elephant--but, in whatever form, he exhibits some virtue that the tale thereby inculcates. In Theravada Buddhism, the Jatakas are a textual division of the Pali Canon, included in the Khuddaka Nikaya of the Sutta Pitaka.
Jataka Tales, Ellen Babbitt, Paperback, 50 Pages, 2015, 7.95
