trying to express the ineffable
This little book of insights contains forty-nine parables and fables that will amuse, teach, and inspire you to reflect on your life and actions. Some of the stories are funny, others are enigmatic and philosophical, but they all convey remarkable life lessons and morals. The tales were carefully selected from the Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, and Confucian traditions, as well as from Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean folklore. If you let them, they just might blow your mind!
This book contains fifty-five of the most enlightening and amusing fables the Jewish tradition has to offer. It includes ancient stories taken from the Talmud and the Midrash, along with more recent tales borrowed from the charismatic rabbis of the Hassidic Movement. Reading these tales will not only teach you about Judaism but will also inspire you to ponder life and death, and anything in between. If you take them seriously, these stories may make a real impact on the way you view your life.
