Hindu Moral Story – Brahmin Blessed With Jackal Form

Once there lived a Brahmin by name Kashyapa. He went to a Gurukula, had formal education, but he had no land to till, and no students to teach in the remote place. He was forced to live by begging alms as he had a large family to feed and support. Every day he set out early in the morning for begging and returned in the noon, with whatever he begged. One noon, while he was on his begging rounds, slowly walking on a road, a rich man’s horse carriage ran over the Brahmin’s left leg. He fell unconscious. Bleeding profusely, with pain and with great difficulty, he somehow crossed the road and sat on a rock. He was brooding over his misfortune. He could no longer beg. His children were very young. Cursing himself, he decided to commit suicide, as he felt he was useless to his family and was a burden to them. Kashyapa crawled across and reached slowly to a lonely place to end his life.

Vedana is one of the five aggregates for interpreting human personality. It is one of the five aggregates (pancha skandha)thorugh which Buddhists explain the human personality. ‘Vedana’, in this context, means ‘feelings’. For interpreting the human personality, as Buddha declined to accept the conception of atma (self), he introduced the theology of ‘five aggregates’. His refusal to accept the eternal existence of atma and its empirically conditioned form as the nature of human personality led him to understand its real nature. Through his active meditations, Buddha understood that the human personality is an aggregate of five constituents. According to Pali Buddhism, they are – vedana (feeling), sanna (perception), sankhara (disposition), rupa (form) and vinnana (consciousness). He also observed that all these constituents are impermanent, and thus the satisfaction one can draw from them is limited. He was clear that the attachment implicitly developed by the human being towards these
