J.106 Uda~ncani Jaataka The bodhisatva and his son lived in a hermitage. One evening when the bodhisatva came back with fruits to the hermitage, he found that his son had neither brought in food and wood nor lit the fire. When questioned by his father, he answered that during the latterís absence, a woman had tempted him, and was waiting outside for him to go with her, if he could obtain his fatherís consent. The bodhisatva, seeing that his son was enamoured of the woman, gave his consent, adding that if ever he wished to come back, he would be welcome. The young man went away with the woman, but after some time, realizing he had to slave to satisfy her needs, he ran away from her and returned to his father.
