Vessantara Jataka, Chapter 8 (The Royal Children)


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description Jujaka visits Vessantara in his cottage in the forest and asks for the children. Vessantara is pleased to be able to help the brahmin with his request and immediately gives away his two children, Jali and Kanha. Again, we see the exchange depicted with the pouring of water onto Jujaka's hands. As the children leave with him, Jujaka ties their hands together and beats them with a stick.
