Lively tales of asceticism, wickedness, and virtue from one of Indias great religious traditions Beautifully translated from the Sanskrit, the stories in this volume reflect the vital tradition of Jain storytelling between the seventh and fifteenth centuries.

There are stories depicting the painful consequences of a loved ones becoming a monk and the triumph of Jain women who win their husbands over to their religion. The climactic story follows an unsuspecting travelers journey through a forest of destructive passions. Ranging from simple folk tales to sophisticated narratives of rebirth, The Forest of Thieves and the Magic Gardenopens a window onto a rich religious tradition.
