Jataka tales – Tales of misers

Ilisa and Kesiya, two misers, foolishly filled their lives with worry. Had they understood the joy of giving and sharing, how much happier they – and their families – would have been! Buddha’s most important message, that desire and greed block the path to eternal bliss, is reiterated in the Jataka tales. These light-hearted parables teach us to respect ourselves as well as others. But, like Manduka in the story, they also relish an occasion to get a fool to part with his money.

The ‘Jataka’ (Birth-cycle) tales narrate the stories related to the ‘seekers of truth’ – those who wish to follow the path of Buddha. Of the 550 Jatakas that form the canon, many are about both animals and humans. The stories were originally compiled in the Pali language.
