Jā 58 Tayodhammajātakaṁ
Three Things leading to Success

The Bodhisatta escapes from a man-eating ogre (rakkhasa) and the latter acknowledges his escape with the following verse.

59. Yassete ca tayo dhammā, Vānarinda yathā tava:
Dakkhiyaṁ sūriyaṁ paññā, diṭṭhaṁ so ativattati.

He who, monkey-King, has three things:
Dexterity, heroism, wisdom,
Will surely overcome his foes.

from Buddhist Wisdom Verses
