Hero of the Land of Snow: a jataka tale
This is a tale of adventure and magic, adapted from an ancient Tibetan epic. Gesar is a hero sent to earth to defend all that is good and vanquish evil. He is destined to be the King of Ling, but he needs the help of the beautiful lady Brougmo and the speed of Kyanshay, his flying horse, to defeat the evil lords who rule the land.
The Jataka Tales, first related by the Buddha more than 2000 years ago, celebrate the power of action motivated by compassion, love, wisdom and kindness. They teach that all we think and do profoundly affects the quality of our lives. Selfish words and deeds bring suffering to us and those around us, while selfless action uplifts all forms of life.
While based on traditional accounts, the stories in this series have been adapted for children of today.
For children ages 7 to 12.
