dc.description.abstractThe T of C on 6-7 gives four sections, with fifteen stories in each: Travel Fables, Animal Fables, Villages and Towns, and The Buddha's Parables. is, according to their website, the global leader in self-publishing. This is really a book of anecdotes -- about Buddha's trip back home when he was forty, as the foreword (4-5) explains. I have read the first eighteen, and have at last bumped into a fable. The Deer's Desires (27) tells the story of the deer who wanted a rider. He got the rider and lost his freedom. The Aesopic version of this fable may help readers by giving a reason for the animal's desire: there the horse desires to avenge himself against the stag. He does get revenge but loses his freedom, as does the deer here. Even the animal fables are told as anecdotes from Buddha's life. The first two anecdotes are incomplete: they are not a good first advertisement for Lulu's publishing! The black-and-white pictures have a strange effect. Many seem either elongated or pixelated. They are taken, apparently, from traditional Japanese artists, listed with their work in the List of Illustrations on 79-86.en_US
