Jataka Tales - Queen's Necklace

Gautama was born a prince, over 2500 years ago in Lumbini, in the northern part of India. He left the comfortable life of the palace, his young wife and infant son, to go in search of true knowledge. After years of wandering, austerities and meditation, he became Buddha ('the Enlightened One'). Buddha taught compassion, non-violence and the need for right conduct in life. His teachings spread far and wide even outside India, in China and Southeast Asia.

The 'Jataka' (Birth-cycle) tales narrate the stories related to 'seekers of truth' - those who wish to follow the path of Buddha. Many of the 550 Jatakas that form the canon are about animals and humans. The stories were originally compiled in the Pali language.

In these Jataka stories, a monkey carries away the necklace of a queen. The first suspect seized was a woodcutter who pointed to a priest who the ponted to a musician and finally a dancer who firmly denied the theft. An intelligent officer played a trick on monkeys and recovered the necklace. A fisherman not wanting to share an expectedly big catch, loses it all. A hawker wanting to buy a gold bowl puts the buy off to next day - only to find that an honest hawker has paid it.
