It is a minor translation, well intended, but not what I was looking for. More a matter of my not reading carefully enough before making my selection.

This is a very interesting book with very many very interesting and nice stories. Some kind of an Indian "Thousand nights and one night" . Beause of the very foreign names it is very difficult to read and follow because for a non-Indian these names often sound very similar so you sometimes get easily mixed up. But you learn a lot about the Indian people and their beliefs. If this is religion it is very different from what we in the West would call religion. You can observe how different and again how similar different peoples are.
