Does anyone know if there is an English translation of the 六度集經 "Sutra on the Collection of the Six Perfections?"
Or, if there are any equivalents of the story of Milinda (Not the king)?
The story is about a merchant, Milinda, who disrespects his mother's wishes for him not to go to sea by putting his foot on her head. His ship get's wrecked and he ends up going through a series of adventures through castles of different stone, each with new and exciting pleasures and adventurous pleasures: silver, to gold, to crystal, to glass. Then he is captured by a ghost and taken to an Iron castle. As a result of his Karma for disrespecting his mother, the ghost burns his body and places a red hot iron wheel on his head which shatters his skull and melts his brain.
It sounds interesting.
