The Jataka Tales are a collection of stories relating the past lifetimes of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni. In these exemplary tales we learn of the qualities developed by the future buddha in his many lifetimes sometimes as a human, sometimes a divine being, a monkey, an elephant, a giant fish, or even a hell-being. Venerable George Churinoff will offer a three-Saturday program where he will help us appreciate the many lessons that we can draw from these tales for how to live our lives today.
