What did you come here for?

The "Jataka Tales" are a voluminous collection of

 literature native to India, concerning the previous births of Gautama Buddha, a widely known ancient saint. These are stories which tell incidences about his several previous lives, as it is said. Buddha may appear in them as a king, an outcast, a god, an elephant—but, in whatever form, he exhibits some virtue that the tale thereby inculcates. Whether these beliefs actually ever happened will only remain in one's faith. However, the stories have provided enjoyment and entertainment since they were written, so enjoy them down to your heart!

A tale about being safe and following the right advice

2 merchants set out on a deadly trip to another place, having to cross a dessert. Decision making plays a key role in this story. Encountering demons, the ones who have just simple common sense will win the game of life and death.
