This book is derived from Chi Hua Man, The Chinese translated version of the Buddhist classic Sutra of A Hundred Parables, written by Sanghasena of ancient India. Priest Gunavaddhi of Central India translated it into Chinese in the year 493, that is, the tenth year of the Reign of Yongming of Southern Qi. Told in the form of parables, the stories in this book inspire wisdom and ridicule, and their morals are embodied in humor to achieve the goal of education.
