Jataka

Buddhist - A collection of 547 stories of the Buddha's previous lives. In a typical story, the Buddha was incarnate as a stray dog, leader of a pack accused of eating the harness of the horses which pulled the royal coach. He persuaded the king to administer an emetic to his own dogs which then vomited up the remains of the harness. As a result, the king decreed that all living things should not be harmed. Also commonly referred to as Jataka, Thai Panyasa-Jataka or Thai Panyasa-Jataka.
