The two engaging stories in this volume originate in Tibetan folklore and deliver their essential moral message in such a way as to appeal to adults and children alike. A story of Antelopes: A Message of Renunciation Toward Cyclic Existence, we meet a stubborn antelope whose refusal of his chieftain's wise advice leads to his downfall. From this tale we learn the invincible laws of self-responsibility or karmic cause and effect. The second fable, The Legend of the Birds and Monkeys, involves us in a dispute between a group of monkeys and a flock of birds. The way the dispute is resolved highlights the wisdom of a fair-minded and logical approach in the face of argument and aggression. The enduring relevance of this message is particularly useful in today's world.
