Devala's Rice Cart

Post by vishy89 » Sun Aug 19, 2012 7:17 am

There is a beautiful book by Paul Carus Titled "Karma: a story of Buddhist ethics" here

It describes the web of karma relationships we create during our lives because of ignorance, likes and dislikes. Many of our friends here may have read it. Could someone tell me which Sutta or Jataka tale it is related to?

Thanks and Metta

Hi vishy89

Hmm not sure whether it is from a Theravada sutta or jataka tale- the introduction states that it first originated in Japan, a Mahayana country. But I can't be certain of course. Maybe there is someone who has read the book or has at least skimmed the online version who may know..
