Spiritual Stories From Around The World In every human society and culture there is a fund of stories - parables, fables, legends - which encapsulate moral and spiritual values and pass those values on from one generation to the next. One of the characters found in every spiritual tradition is the wandering sage. Sometimes he has a name, such as Mulla Nasrudin or Guru Nudel. More often he is nameless. He belongs to no religious hierarchy, and has no religious affiliation. In parts of the world this storytelling tradition still survives, and in four spiritual traditions it is especially prominent; Taoism, Sufism, the Celtic and Hasidic traditions. This collection of over 70 stories captures the flavour of timeless wisdom and counter-cultural wit that is part of our Heritage. The stories are suitable for all ages, easy to remember, and once remembered never forgotten.
