Content: [Bubuksha story:] two brothers, Bubuksha and Gagang Aking are doing penance on a mountain. The latter feeds only on vegetables, the former also on animal food. The supreme deity Bhatara Guru sends his servant, disguised as a white tiger to them with the order that he desire to eat human meat. The latter refuses to offer himself since he is too thin to serve the purpose properly, the former, fat and healthy, is gladly willing to be devoured in order to attain a higher state. The tiger then alllows him to sit on his back, while Gagang Aking has to content himself with walking behind the tiger. They are led to heaven, where Bubuksha gets the better place for his self-sacrifice.
