The main purpose of these stories is to develop the moral and ethical values of the readers. By reading these stories, children and adults can develop their knowledge and learn how to face difficult experiences of modern life. All Jataka stories have a moral at the end on how to correct our ways and to develop virtuous conduct and good behaviour. Children and adults can learn to develop good values and qualities like patience, forbearance, tolerance and the four sublime states of mind : loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity. Without wholesome values, people cannot be happy in their hearts and minds, or be at peace.
To allow readers to understand the Jataka stories in modern English, the stories are not a
scholarly word-for-word translation, instead they are retold in a manner that conveys the spirit
and meaning they embrace.
