Translated by Joyce Lim, Illustrated by N.S. Chen in cartoon style. 5.75"x 8.5", 201 pages, paperback. A popular Buddhist classic compiled from twelve sutras by an Indian monk in the 5th century. All accounts in the book are crisp, entertaining and meaningful. The stories appear unbelievable and absurd, but are full of wisdom and provide a clear mirror for self reflection. The distinction of this compilation among other sutras lies in its rhetoric which is concise, vivid and humorous.
