Saketa Jataka

Brethren, in ages past this Brahmin was my father in 500 successive births, my uncle in a like number, and in 500 more my grandfather. And in 1500 successive births his wife was respectively my mother, my aunt, and my grand mother. So I was brought up in 1500 births by this Brahmin, and in 1500 by his wife.

            And there withal, having told of these 3000 births, the Master, as Buddha, recited this Stanza:-

                        The man thy mind rests on, with whom thy heart

                        Is pleased at first sight, place thy trust in him.
