Jataka numbering

Why is the MAHA-UMMAGGA JATAKA numbered #546 in the Cowell book, vol. 3 (of Motital…publication), p. 156 of the original Vol. 6 (I think), but on Sutta Central is numbered #542? See: https://suttacentral.net/en/ja542. Part of the story relates to DN 5.

Thanks and metta, Fred

Our numbering follows th system of the Mahasangiti Pali edition, so the translation numbers have been adjusted to fit. I haven’t looked into the exact reasons for the variation, but usually it is because one of the editions abbreviates repeated texts.

Thank you Bhante, metta, Fred
