leopard do not bite


Gomari, a village lass slips out of a sermon at the temple and into the thick jungle to frolic with her lover but they both fall prey to a leopard. People in the nearby village listen to the monk for advice. All except the hunter who lives in the jungle. He provides the village with meat but he eats it not. It is the month of Vesak and the people from the nearby village plan to observe the precepts on Vesak full moon day. The hunter knows what happened to Gomari and entreats the Monk to cancel his scheduled program but the monk refuses and leads such matters to fate. The hunter, who never kills except as food for people, is forced to kill the leopard. When the monk and the hunter go into the jungle the next day, all they see are the rotting corpses of Gomari and the monk.
