Thanks a lot for your info! and about the Garland of Birth Stories, Jataka（本生故事），
I’m looking for the original stories of the following verses:
1.Jm: 32.7-9; P5650:59.5.7-60.1.2.
By accustoming themselves to virtuous and nonvirtuous karma
Humans become habituated to these actions.
Though you may ignore such matters,
In other lives you will experience their effects, like a dream.
Those who do not train in generosity, ethical discipline, and the like
May have good family lineages, good bodies, and health,
And may have great power or enormous wealth,
But they will not find happiness in future lives.
As for those whose family lineage and such are inferior but who are not attached to sin
And who have qualities such as generosity and ethical discipline,
Their happiness in future lifetimes will grow
As surely as the monsoons of summer fill up the ocean.
Once you have become certain that virtuous and nonvirtuous karma
Give rise to happiness and suffering in lives beyond,
Eliminate sins and make effort at virtuous actions.
You without faith, do as you will.
and this one:
2.Jm: 15.1,28.16-17,29.2; P5650:26.45,40.2.3-5,513.6-7.
Alas, afflicted and worldly persons,
I do not like unstable things.
Even this glorious white water lily (kumada)
Will become a memory.
Alas, it is amazing that you beings are fearless,
Placed in a realm like this.
You are joyous and act unworried
Though the Lord of Death blocks every path.
As you have the powerful, dangerous, and unstoppable enemies
Of sickness, aging, and death,
You surely will go to a fearful place in the next life.
1 wonder what thoughtful person would delight in this?
Could you please help me to find the exact original text where’s the verses come from?
Thanks a lot!
