J.372 Migapotaka Jaataka Once a certain ascetic in the Himavanta forest adopted a young deer that had lost its mother. The deer grew up most comely but died from over-eating. The ascetic lamented greatly until Sakka (the bodhisatva) appeared to him and pointed out the folly of his sorrow. The Jataka was told in reference to an old man of Savatthi who looked after a novice very devotedly. The novice died and the old man abandoned himself to grief. The characters of the two stories were the same. 58/854 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.iii.213ff. mourning, bereavement
