Jā 97 Nāmasiddhijātakaṁ
A Name is Just a Name
In the story a man called Wicked hates his name so he is advised to search for a new one. He comes across Life who had just died, Wealthy who was poor, and Guide who was lost in a forest. Then he realised a name is just a name, nothing more.
94. Jīvakañ-ca mataṁ disvā, Dhanapāliñ-ca duggataṁ,
Panthakañ-ca vane mūḷhaṁ, Pāpako puna-r-āgato.
Seeing Life lying dead,
Wealthy in poverty,
And Guide lost in the wood,
Wicked came home again.
