11: Maddi Given Away

Vessantara is asked by the god Indra for his wife, Maddi. Maddi is given to Indra, who disguises himself as a brahmin. Indra reveals himself as a god and returns her. Prince Vessantara, with this act, has given away all his possessions, even those most dear to him. He has completed the perfection of generosity for a Buddha.
