Jā 92 Mahāsārajātakaṁ
Wise Discrimination

The Bodhisatta uncovers a female monkey as the real thief of the King’s jewels, and the King praised him with the following verse.

60. Ukkaṭṭhe sūram-icchanti; mantīsu akutūhalaṁ;
Piyañ-ca annapānamhi, atthe jāte ca Paṇḍitaṁ.

In battle they wish for a hero;
In advice for calmness of speech;
In food and drink for one friendly;
When there is need they wish for the Wise.
