8. Mac­chuddāna­jātaka

“Agghanti macchā adhikaṃ sahassaṃ,
Na so atthi yo imaṃ saddaheyya;
Mayhañca assu idha satta māsā,
Ahampi taṃ macchuddānaṃ kiṇeyyaṃ”.

“Macchānaṃ bhojanaṃ datvā,
mama dakkhiṇamādisi;
Taṃ dakkhiṇaṃ sarantiyā,
kataṃ apacitiṃ tayā”.

“­Pa­duṭṭha­cittassa na phāti hoti,
Na cāpi taṃ devatā pūjayanti;
Yo bhātaraṃ pettikaṃ sāpateyyaṃ,
Avañcayī duk­kaṭakam­ma­kārī”ti.

Mac­chuddāna­jātakaṃ aṭṭhamaṃ.
