Jā 533 Cūlahaṁsajātakaṁ

−−−⏑¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−
Evaṁ mittavataṁ atthā sabbe honti padakkhiṇā,

−−⏑−¦⏑⏑−−¦¦−⏑−⏑¦⏑−⏑−   savipulā
Haṁsā yathā Dhataraṭṭhā, ñātisaṅgham-upāgamuṁ. [101]

 

Jā 121 Kusanāḷijātakaṁ

⏑−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
Kare sarikkho, atha vā pi seṭṭho,

⏑−⏑−¦−,⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
Nihīnako vā pi, kareyya mitto, BJT, ChS, Thai: eko; the point would seem to be lost with this reading.01

⏑−−−,¦⏑⏑−¦−⏑−−   Vedic opening
Kareyyuṁ te ChS, Thai: Kareyyum-ete; this doesn't improve the metre. 02 vyasane uttamatthaṁ,

⏑−⏑−,¦⏑⏑−¦−⏑−−
Yathā ahaṁ Kusanāḷī Text, ChS, Thai: -nāli; the long vowel is needed for the cadence. 03 rucāyaṁ. [102]

 

Jā 157 Guṇajātakaṁ

⏑⏑−⏑−¦⏑−−−¦¦−⏑−−¦⏑−⏑−
Api ce pi Text omits: pi. 04 dubbalo mitto mittadhammesu tiṭṭhati,

−−⏑−¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑−
So Text Yo, but the sense requires so. 05 ñātako ca bandhū ChS, Thai: bandhu; giving the Anuṭṭhubha variation. 06 ca, so mitto so ca me sakhā,

−⏑⏑−¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−
Dāṭhini mātimaññittho, Thai: mātimaññivho; this looks like a perfect form, but the prohibitive is normally constructed with the aorist. 07 sigālo Text, ChS: siṅgālo; alternative spelling. 08 mama pāṇado! [103]

 

Jā 83 Kālakaṇṇijātakaṁ

−−⏑−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−−
Mitto have sattapadena hoti,

⏑−−⏑−,¦−⏑⏑¦−⏑−− Metrically the opening is incorrect here; perhaps we could understand the 2nd vowel as short and allow for resolution; this sometimes happens in Mattacchandas verses, but I have not seen it in Tuṭṭhubha before. 09
Sahāyo pana dvādasakena hoti,

−−⏑−¦−⏑,⏑¦−⏑−−
Māsaddhamāsena Text, ChS, Thai: -aḍḍha-; showing the d/ḍ alternation found in the texts. 10 ca ñāti hoti,

Accheraṁ BJT, Thai: Acchariyaṁ; also below, in which case we would have to see an epenthetic vowel. 12 bhojanaṁ laddhā tassa nuppajjate sati, Text splits this line off from the next, but they belong together so I have redivided the lines. 13

⏑−−−¦⏑−⏑−¦¦⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−   Anuṣṭubh

⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−¦¦⏑−−⏑¦⏑−⏑−   Anuṣṭubh
Tato naṁ anukampati, aho! so pi labheyy' ito. Thai: pahāsopi labheyy' ito? Is this to be parsed p' ahā so pi? In which case we have api twice in one line. 21 [113]

 

−−−−¦⏑−−−¦¦−−−−¦⏑−⏑−
Iccete soḷasākārā mittasmiṁ suppatiṭṭhitā,
