Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
A mountain stag fell in love with a doe who had gone into the forest from the village during the time of the ripening of the corn. When the time came for the doe to return to the village, the stag, in his love, accompanied her. The people of the village, knowing of the deers return, lay in ambush for them. The doe, seeing a huntsman, sent the stag on ahead, and he was killed and eaten. The doe escaped. The Bodhisatta, who was a forest deva, seeing the incident, preached to the other forest dwellers on the three infamies:
it is infamy to cause anothers death;
infamous is the land ruled by a woman:
infamous are the men who yield themselves to womens dominance (J.i.153-6).
The circumstances in which the story was related are given in the Indriya Jataka.
