Folk tales are the same the world over, for they tell of people. Not ordinary people like those we meet on our journey through life, but the whole secret and exciting society of one-eyed sorcerers, evil gaints, hansome princes and danc-ing fairies who weave magic spells as they fly between the folds of a rainbow.
Stories from Beyond the Clouds, poignantly displays Clifford Thurlow’s masterful translation of Tibetan folk tales. In the stores themselves, interwoven between mysteries and fan-tasies, are the essential teachings of Buddhism, as only as they could be found within the rich cultural heritage of Tibet.
These are the tales from the Roof of the world as they have been passed down from generation to generation, ar-riving amongst us at a time where they are just as meaningful to our live now, as when they were first told.
