Guide: Golden Mongoose

This is a guide to The Golden Mongoose: Tales of Duty from the Mahabharata (Volume 670). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.670

Summary: The first story in the book is about a mongoose who is golden on one side; the mongoose comes to Yudhishthira's royal sacrifice and tells a story about true sacrifice. The second story is about a young man who renounces the world to live an ascetic life but learns about Dharma from a butcher. In the third story, a hunter is enlightened when a pigeon offers him refuge and hospitality during a storm. You can find out more about Dharma at Wikipedia.

I have not had time to write the Reading Guide for this one, so please help me with that: in addition to doing your own Reading Diary post at your blog, leave a comment here at this blog where you list the names, places, topics, anything you saw in this comic book that I could/should explain the Reading Guide later.

If you don't see anything that need explaining, leave a comment that says "Everything clear" or something like that.

That way, with your help, I'll be able to focus my attention on the comic books that people have the most questions about.
