This book contains a collection of famous myths, legends and fairy tales of different ancient cultures. Medhananda interprets the Greek myth of Herakles, two Grimm's fairy tales, an Egyptian picture strip and papyrus, an Indian parable and the Gospel of Thomas (that was buried in the sand of Egypt until 1945). He gives us a new key to perceive the hidden messages of wisdom, wisdom in the sense of self-knowledge, an awareness of our different soul-forces and their play and movements in us. We recognise that wisdom is as old as mankind and has expressed itself in an early age through symbols, images, myths, dreams, fairy tales.
