Mūgapakkha Jātaka

In honour of friends

Translation of verses from the Mūgapakkha Jātaka (538), verses 12-21.)

Food is plentiful for him when he is away from home: he lives in abundance,
Who is loyal to his friends.

Whatever country he visits, in city or town, he is an honoured guest everywhere.
Who is loyal to his friends.

Thieves do not harm him, nor warrior despise him: he goes past all his enemies,
Who is loyal to his friends.

He returns to his home without anger and is welcomed in council: foremost amongst his relatives is one
Who is loyal to his friends.
