Siawsawat (Fasicle Number 1 )
Summary: Siawsawat is a doctrine literature which the content include the main story and short folk tales. There was a millionaire family with two sons name Srisaliaw and Siawsawat. When the two grew up as the young men, the father gave them the houses. Srisaliaw, the elder brother, chose the finished house, while Siawsawat, the younger brother, chose the unfinished house. The father suddenly knew that his younger son, Siawsawat, is a wise man and will be successful in his life. The father taught his sons very well, guided them live their life, follow the custom, be generous, don't be lazy, persevere in studies, don't be a friend with the uncertain people, and believe in the parent words. However, the parent doctrine cannot be equivalent to the teaching of the Lord Buddha. Wise man will not live in the bad environment; because the environment shapes a man. Men should leave in a good place. After the parent passed away, the two brothers kept behaving and follow their parent words. One day, there was junk from Champa city that arrived at the port of their city. Siawsawat asked the merchant to travel with them. The merchant loved him like his son. On the trade way, Siawsawat often had strength questions in the crews' eyes. They thought that Siawsawat was insane. His questions, for example, were, "Is there any stone in the islet?", "Are there any people in the city?", and "Is there any wood in the forest?" When the merchant arrived home, he told his family about Siawsawat and his behavior and his questions. Nang Siwai, a beautiful daughter of the merchant then knew the meaning of Siawsawat's questions. The question "Is there any stone in the islet?" means "Is there any valuable stone in the islet". The question "Are there any people in the city?" means "Is there any wisemen in the city". "Is there any wood in the forest?" means "Is there any valuable wood in the forest". Then, the merchant realized that Siawsawat is a wise man, so he married him to his daughter, Nang Siwan. The king of Champa city, who has a bad virtue, has always thought that somebody wants to kill him. Every night, he orders 500 people to protect him. If anybody falls asleep, he will command a killing of that person and forfeiture of their property. One day, that duty turned to the merchant.s (Siawsawat's father-in-law). He knew that he will be killed by the king like other people who used to be in this duty. Thus, he gave all his properties to his daughter and his son-in-law. But, Siawsawat did not accept. He volunteered to do the duty for his father-in-law. At the palace, while he was on sentry, he was reciting very loud. That made the king change his mind every time he wanted to kill security guard. The next day, he had a chance to meet the king and told him the Buddha teaching through the folk tales reflect his behaviors. The king realized that Siawsawat is a wise man. He changed to have virtues of the king. He appointed Siawsawat to be a great master teaching his citizens. Afterward, Champa city changed to be a peaceful city, where the ruler and the citizens have virtues., No. of Pages: 251; No. of Fasicles: 6 Script: Tham Isan, This item digitized and made available online with funds provided by United States Department of Education, TICFIA (Technological Innovation and Cooperation for Foreign Information) Grant P337A05006.
