Product Overview

Narayana''s best-seller gives its reader much more than "Friendly Advice." In one handy collection--closely related to the world-famous Pancatantra or Five Discourses on Worldly Wisdom --numerous animal fables are interwoven with human stories, all designed to instruct wayward princes. Tales of canny procuresses compete with those of cunning crows and tigers. An intrusive ass is simply thrashed by his master, but the meddlesome monkey ends up with his testicles crushed. One prince manages to enjoy himself with a merchant''s wife with her husband''s consent, while another is kicked out of paradise by a painted image. This volume also contains the compact version of King Víkrama''s Adventures, thirty-two popular tales about a generous emperor, told by thirty-two statuettes adorning his lion-throne.
