J.218 Ku.tavaa.nija Jaataka A villager once deposited five hundred ploughshares with a friend in the town, but when he came to retreive them, he was told that they had been eaten by mice, and was shown the dung the mice had left behind. Some time later, the villager took his friendís son to bathe, hid him in the house, and reported to the townsman that the boy had been carried off by a hawk. When he was taken before a judge, who was the Bodhisatva, he protested that in a place where mice could eat ploughshares, a hawk could easily carry off a boy. The Bodhisatva settled the dispute.
