Jataka 110

Sabbasaṃhāraka-pañha

All Collected Wisdom

as told by Eric Van Horn

originally translated by Robert Chalmers, B.A., of Oriel College, Oxford University

Some of the stories in this collection simply reference other stories. This is one of them. The “story” itself is simply the first line.

The PTS edition of this story says that the referenced Jātaka is number 254. However, the Ummagga Jātaka is actually number 546. If you want to read it, click here.

Once you read Jātaka 546, you may be confused as to what the “all-embracing question is.” So am I.

There is no all-embracing.” This all-embracing question will be set out at length in the Ummagga Jātaka. This is the end of the all-embracing question.
