The Jogi's Punishment

A rajah made a jogi welcome in his city, building a house where he might receive guests. The rajah’s only child was a beautiful daughter, who was betrothed to a neighboring prince. One day this daughter visited the jogi, who was instantly attracted to her. She guessed his intention and fled, and the jogi threw a lance after her, wounding her in the leg.
