Buddhism Miracles In Buddhism

Taken from other resources

I've been looking on the net for some resource describing all the various miracles Buddha was suppose to have... done, or witnessed. Miracles or wonderous things seem to be at odds in some interpretations of Buddhism, and I blame that for my inability to find anything on the net. But I was curious about the myths and their origins and meanings.

I've heard something about a monkey with honey, and the taming of an elephant, but that's the extent of my knowledge. Also, Buddha's wonderous conception and birth - I know about that.

Can anyone help me out?

For starters, try some of these links:

http://www.seasite.niu.edu/lao/culture/jakarta_fp.htm
http://www.indiaprofile.com/religion-culture/jatakas.htm
http://www.buddhanet.net/bt_intro.htm
http://hjem.get2net.dk/civet-cat/poetry-stories/jataka1.htm
http://ftp.ccccd.edu/mtarafdar/Jataka.html

You will find some introductions to the Buddhist Jataka ("birth") stories in general and a number of Jatakas.

For specific stories, you could try searching using "Jataka" and keywords relating to the story, but it won't be easy. I tried "monkey AND honey AND (buddha OR jataka)" and got more than 40 000 hits...

Ang 690 - Har Jeeo Kirapaa Karae Thaa Naam Dhhiaaeeai Jeeo | ਹਰਿ ਜੀਉ ਕ੍ਰਿਪਾ ਕਰੇ ਤਾ ਨਾਮੁ ਧਿਆਈਐ ਜੀਉ

This shabad uses the word ਜੀਉ frequently, it is written as if Guru Ram Das is talking to a friend...
