Description :


It is found among the old, old histories of the Tibetans that a female demon living among the mountains in Northern India mated with a monkey from the forests of Tibet, and from this union sprang the Tibetan race of people. The greater part of their literature is of a sacred nature, telling of their creation, of the formation of the world, of Buddha and his miraculous birth and death, of his reincarnations and the revisions of his teachings. A kind of almanac, a little astronomy, plans for casting a horoscope, and many books filled with religious teachings and superstitions, including the worship of devils and demons, are about all that can be found. The 49 little stories in this book are told as the people sit around their boiling tea made over a three stone camp-fire. They are handed down from father to son, from mother to daughter, and though often filled with their superstitious beliefs, through them all run a vein of humor and the teachings of a moral truth which is quite unexpected. These tales were gathered by Dr. A. L. Shelton on his trips among the Tibetans, around their camp-fires at night, and in their black tents high up in the mountains. Every country has its folk-lore tales that have always been a joy and pleasure to the children, not only of their own land, but of other lands as well. May these stories add a little to this pleasure and enjoyment everywhere, in whatsoever tongue they may be translated or in whatever land they may be read. Flora Beal Shelton 1925

ISSN: 2397-9607 Issue 443 In this 443rd issue of the Baba Indaba?s Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba narrates two Tibetan Fairy Tales. The first is ?The Man and the Ghost? and the second ?How The Rabbit Killed The Lion." In our first tale we read of a man walking along a remote mountain path when he met a ghost. Despite his fear of the ghost he did not show and presently they journeyed on together conversing and learning more about each other. Presently they came to a city and this is when pandemonium ensued??.. But what actually happened? Was the man recognised as a ghost and did he frighten the people? Or did the actual ghost run amok? In our second story, a long time ago when there were no mountains and the sun scorched the earth, every morning the Lion, the King of the Beasts appeared and all the animals had to come and kowtow (bow) before him. Except one day the rabbit decided he would no longer do this. What happened next? Did the Lion notice, and if he did what would he do about it? How did everything turn out in the end? Well, you?ll have to download and read these stories to find out for yourself. Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories". Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world.

Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories". ÿ It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, are altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.

Description :


A virtuous young woman journeys to the Land of the Dead to retrieve the still-beating heart of a king; a wily corpse-monster tricks his young captor into setting him free; a king falls under a curse that turns him into a cannibal; a shepherd who understands the speech of animals saves a princess from certain death. These are just a few of the wondrous tales that await readers of this collection of Tibetan Buddhist folktales. Fifteen stories are told for modern readers in a vivid, accessible style that reflects a centuries-old tradition of storytelling in the monasteries and marketplaces of Tibet. As a child growing up in a Buddhist monastery, Yeshi Dorjee would often coax the elderly lamas into telling him folktales. By turns thrilling, mysterious, clever, and often hilariously funny, the stories he narrates here also teach important lessons about mindfulness, compassion, and other key Buddhist principles. They will delight readers of all ages, scholars and students, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.

In the first story, the tiger, which lives in the jungle, is hungry. He starts looking for food but finds it hard to come by. He is so hungry that even a frog will do for dinner thinking that he will catch the biggest, fattest frog. He arrives at the pond and sees many frogs. When they see the tiger many take refuge in the pond, except for one who sits on a lily pad in the middle of the pond. A conversation follows?? Can you guess what was said? Did the tiger get to eat the frog for his dinner? Well, you will have to download and read the story to find out.

As the donkey passed, part of the load on the donkey?s back knocked over and broke the jar of oil and the oil trader was understandably annoyed. Well, what happened? Did the pair agree it was an accident and agree to go their own ways or did something else happen?
