In this book Mahesh Prabhu presents Vedic stories in their core essence, relaying and focusing their deeper meaning, not interfering with it or reducing it to alien and superficial concepts. His stories are short, poignant, and diverse, with multiple levels of meaning, like parables, conundrums, paradoxes and axioms (sutras). He has drawn these stories from many traditional sources in Sanskrit literature and reworked them in a concise and invocative manner. They feature the names and stories of famous sages, kings, places and the peoples of old India. Such exalted figures as King Bhartrihari or the Vedantic sage Ashtavakra visit these pages and come to life again through them.

Around two thousand years ago there was a person of great intellect, influence, and motivation. We don’t know much about his personal life, although there are many extraordinary legends about him. He was neither a warrior nor a ruler, nor a priest. He was a wise sage – a rishi – who rewrote two Vedic treatises, namely: Arthashastra and Artha Sutras. His name was Kautilya (a.k.a. Chanakya a.k.a. Vishnu Gupta a.k.a. Vishnu Sharma.) Kautilya’s Arthashastra contains many vital principles of management, governance, and polity that can be used with high efficacy to the present day. They can provide keys to solving a great many problems threatening our new high-tech world order by nurturing responsible and effective leadership. Although there are several translations of Kautilya’s Arthashastra, most of its in-depth knowledge and wisdom is neither properly understood nor utilized for various reasons. Also, much of its secrets remain hidden. Presenting his time-tested knowledge and wisdom with sharp insight into contemporary leadership, politics, and diplomacy is the prime objective of this book series Kautilya: Understanding the Colossal Genius.

Ancient Vedic India was a land where knowledge and wisdom were revered as the greatest wealth. There intellectual Brahmins, sagely Rishis, and equipoised Munis were honored for their incomparable knowledge. At a time when writing was not well developed, Smriti or memory was the main medium by which knowledge was recorded before transmitting it through Vak or the spoken word from a preceptor Guru to his disciples Shishyas. Mantras or hymns composed in ancient Sanskrit were used to remember complex knowledge along with Katha or thought-provoking tales. These tales besides being entertaining were also enlightening and promoted deeper Vichara or contemplation. In this first volume of Rishis Tales, U. Mahesh Prabhu presents 21 such stories translated from the ancient Sanskrit. Tales that continue to inspire millions of people towards the true understanding of Self, wisdom, peace, and prosperity.

Storytelling is one of the oldest art forms known to mankind. It has stimulated imaginations and even built communities of tellers and listeners. Oral storytelling, particularly, is an ancient and intimate tradition between storytellers and listeners. Storytelling is also a social and cultural activity with substantial improvisation, theatrics, and embellishment. Narratives have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, cultural preservation besides instilling moral values. However, very few stories have survived tradition and even fewer have made sense with passing time. Panchatantra translated to “five strategies” in English, has always been an exception.

It has not just entertained and hailed the importance of morality, besides defining it, but has also educated people about the intricacies of life – relationships, particularly. The fact that these stories have survived at least 3,000 years – without the patronage of any specific race, religion or sect, should speak vehemently about the timeless and time-tested wisdom embedded in it. However, a great many re-tellers of this story have often missed on many parts – Neetis, particularly. In this book author U. Mahesh Prabhu translates the original Sanskrit stories and maxim in its entirety in a way that which is not just entertaining but also enlightening on deep retrospection.

When you die, your body is buried or burnt right here on earth. The mind too is gone with the body. So what exactly do you think will go to Heaven, Swarga or Jannat instead of your body or mind? If you say, soul, then what are you going to do with all the divine pleasantries you are supposed to be rewarded in heaven which can only be enjoyed by a mind and a body? How can you burn in hell, or suffer pain when neither the body nor mind is there?

Why make yours and others life a living hell in the name of God(s), prophet and religion? Why not enjoy being right here by doing all the good you can? Why not just be and let others be?

When you find someone living a comfortable life, never feel envy or sad. If you are inquisitive and persistent, find out as to who is paying for the person's comforts. If that person is living upon one's inheritance (parents, relatives, in-laws, ancestral property, etc.) or handouts - feel sorry for him, for that person is no better than a beggar. A person subsisting upon others can never be happy. If that person has earned every bit of money paying for those comforts, admire that person. We all can learn a thing or two from every person we meet - be they good or bad. No matter how good a person, there are bound to be some bad qualities and no matter how bad a person - there will be something definitely something good. The art of learning and inculcating the good and trying to alleviate bad from ourselves is the path of Wisdom.

True, we all have to take a side in life. But instead of a person let that be for a goal and let that goal be universal welfare. Humans are futile. They sway, they get distracted and they change. To believe in one man as a savior or messiah and then to blindly follow him is outright stupidity. Think objectively - never subjectively. Even a analog clock that isn't working is right twice a day. When anyone does something right do appreciate them and when they are wrong do criticize them - but without abusing them. Freedom of speech is to present an argument not to abuse people.

A crow had a piece of meat in its tiny beak. As it flew towards the skies, a whole bunch of birds followed it. "I am popular!" said the crow to itself. However, soon it realized that those birds were behind it for its meat and nothing else. It tried flying away, but the birds didn't stop the pursuit. Out of sheer exhaustion, the crow dropped the meat. Soon, all the birds stop pursuing the crow and instead started chasing another bird which had picked the flesh in its beak.

MORAL: Don't confuse your popularity for your success. Until you say and do things that please them, people will admire and adore you, and as soon as you say and do things they don't understand or dislike, or once their motives are accomplished they will begin cursing you. A reason why sages seek the company of the self, than people.
