Synopsis The theme of the work is the story of how a marvelous throne belonging to Vikrama was discovered by a much later king named Bhoja, to whom were related the thirty-two stories contained in the book, each story being told by one of the thirty-two divine statues which supported the throne. The stories all deal with the wonderful character and deeds of Vikrama - a model for kings to follow. The theme most constantly harped upon is his amazing generosity an unselfishness, which knew no bounds not stopping even at the sacrifice of his own life.
