Jataka Tales are a collection of ancient Buddhist stories that recount the previous lives of the Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama. These tales are believed to teach moral and ethical lessons, illustrating the virtues of compassion, generosity, honesty, and other qualities. Each Jataka tale typically follows a similar narrative structure, featuring the Buddha in different animal or human forms. The stories often involve animals as main characters, with each animal representing certain human qualities or behaviors. The tales depict moral dilemmas, challenges, and examples of virtuous behavior that offer guidance for leading a righteous life.

What then can the smaller creatures of the world do to save themselves? Read the ancient wisdom of these Jataka tales in this Amar Chitra Katha compilation to find out.
