This edition only includes those metrical verses occuring in the various stories and Jatakas, as well as the corresponding English translation by J. J. Jones.

Verse 18.38

यत् तत् सुगतशरीरं भवते भवस्य बन्धनक्षयकरणं ।
लोकोत्तरं तद् अपि भो इत्य् अत्र न संशयः कार्यो ॥ ३८ ॥

yat tat sugataśarīraṃ bhavate bhavasya bandhanakṣayakaraṇaṃ |
lokottaraṃ tad api bho ity atra na saṃśayaḥ kāryo || 38 ||

The Sugata’s body, which brings about the destruction of the fetters of existence, is also transcendental. Of this, my friends, there should be no doubt. (38)
