Five Discourses of Worldly Wisdom, Hardback Book

Five Discourses of Worldly Wisdom Hardback

Part of the Clay Sanskrit Library series


The king despairs of his idle sons, so he hires a learned brahmin who promises to make their lessons in statecraft unmissable.

The lessons are disguised as short stories, featuring mainly animal protagonists.

Many of these narratives have traveled across the world, and are known in the West as Aesop's fables. Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC FoundationFor more on this title and other titles in the Clay Sanskrit series, please visit http://www.claysanskritlibrary.org
