One of the most instructive and powerful ways that wisdom is communicated is through stories. Think of the folk tales, fairy tales, and fables we heard as children – our cultural heritage – that have become part of personal fund of knowledge. Think of the aphorisms and metaphors that are part and parcel of our day-to-day communication with others. Think of Jesus’ parables in the Bible.
Swami Rama and Swami Veda told hundreds of teaching stories that were passed on to them from their parents and their teachers, the ancient texts, and the Indian folk lore of the Puranas, the Mahabharata, the Dhamapada, and the Jataka Tales.
Read here a transcript of a recording by Pandit Usharbudh Arya (later Swami Veda Bharati), “Wisdom within Stories.”
