Format: Paperback
Too many of the tales followed the same formula and left me unsure that any great virtue was extolled. In my mind, giving away things that are not needed nor wanted does not constitute generosity!!? But I really enjoyed the plethora of wise Sanskrit proverbs. [Specific rating: 2.5 / 5 stars]
