Off-group help in translating a verse from the Jatakas
- I know very little of Pali. Chiefly I use the DPR to help me when I have a question regarding a translation.
When most people speak of the Jatakas, they're referring primarily to the Jataka commentaries. When I speak of the Jatakas, I'm referring to the verses, usually cryptic, which are the only actual parts of the Jatakas in the Sutta-Pitaka. I say Jataka commentaries when I mean the Jataka commentaries.
I am trying to translate a particular sutta from the Jatakas to see if Chalmers got it right. I am looking at the Pali and the DPR and it is clear that it is beyond my capabilities. I was wondering if there's anyone out there who would be willing to help me translate a couple of Jataka verses (without reference to the commentaries) in a private correspondence. Not only would this help me on my question about this sutta, but it would help me in my general knowledge of Pali.
