Mahakapi Jatakas- a modern take


Hey thanks for that! Poor monkeys! :cry: And amazing to see how people made such an effort to help them out. People are incredible. :heart_eyes:

Also I can’t help noting, it shows how keenly observed and vivid the Jataka stories are, a trait they share with the EBTs. They are full of these images and events drawn from what is going on around them.


You are welcome Bhante. There are many kind people out there that deserve :pray:t3::pray:t3::pray:t3:…:smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Sadly, despite being classified as β€œ environmentally friendly β€œ, irrigation projects can be a bane to the local wildlife. Not to mention local villages and viable farmland.

This attempt to rescue a tiger was made under similar circumstances with a rope ladder.

I also remember seeing somewhere in India, a man lowering himself into a well to rescue a tranquilized, full grown tiger :open_mouth:

Speaks to the Enduring, timeless spirit of compassion and wisdom we can still see around us in all beings :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
