Lovely Tales

Lovely Zen tales read with a lovely voice. The music, though, is even more lovely than the tales! It is played with each story, then there is a long segment of uninterrupted music at the end of the 101 tales. What a beautiful ending it was! I plan to use this uninterrupted music for meditation...or whenever I need to soothe my soul...

Namaste... Jade Dragon

Loud Music!

The stories are beautiful and the narration is perfect but the stories are separated by very LOUD music. I found it very stressful to listen to. Also the music is not melodic and is very intense. This would have been so lovely without the music!

Brillante. Loved it

Great stories and the last 7 or so chapters with around 30 minutes of music for meditation. Really enjoyed and will listen to often.

Gems of inner peace

A great collection of stories. A great way to meditate, find inner strenght and practice inner dialogue. Very soothing and readsuring. Well read and easy to follow. It would be great if it came with an analysis as well.
