Hitopadesha (Good Counsel) is an 11-12th century Sanskrit collection of stories, written by Narayana Pandit, in four chapters instead of five as in the Panchatantra on which it is based. Each chapter contains a string of stories, one emerging from the other, with each designed to render counsel on ethical worldly-wise conduct.
