Sister Gargi's book gives a sextet of lighter vein in these six Vedantic Tales.

In Vedantic Tales six interesting stories from the ancient Indian literature have been retold by Sister Gargi (Marie Louise Burke) In simple English, and tastefully illustrated by Brahmacharini Prajna. Through primarily intended for children and teenagers, these absorbing stories will be equally enjoyed by their parents.

Most Hindus will be familiar with the parables upon which these tales are based, having heard them since their early childhood. But these are not children's tales, Sister Gargi insists.

Parables are not, and never were, meant for children; they bring messages from the realm of the spirit to the adult, particularly to grown-up adult with ears to hear. Their simplicity is not childish; it is, rather, the simplicity of an arrow - pointed and swift, and fashioned to strike its mark without ado.'
