Sinopsis de THE FOREST OF THIEVES AND THE MAGIC GARDEN: AN ANTHOLOGY OF MEDIEVAL JAIN STORIES (PENGUIN CLASSICS) de :

The stories collected in this volume reflect the rich tradition of medieval Jain storytelling between the seventh and fifteenth centuries, from simple folk tales and lives of famous monks to sophisticated narratives of rebirth. They describe they ways in which a path to peace and bliss can be found, either by renouncing the world or by following Jain ethics of non-violence, honesty, moderat ion and fidelity. Here are stories depicting the painful consequences when a loved one chooses life as a monk, the triumph of Jain women who win over their husbands to their religion, or the rewards of a simple act of piety. The volume ends with an account of vice and virtue, which depict the thiev ing and destructive passions lurking in the forest of life, ready to rob the unsuspecting traveller of reason and virtue.
