Amarādevī-pañha

The name given to the riddle in which Amarā tells Mahosadha the way to her house: “Yena sattu bilangā ca dviguṇapalāso ca pupphito, yenādāmi tena vadāmi yena nādāmi na tena vadāmi esa maggo yavamajjhakassa etaṃ channapathaṃ vijānāhīti.”

The scholiast explains it thus: entering the village you will see a cake shop and then a gruel shop; further on an ebony tree in flower, take a path to the right.

This riddle referred to in J.i.425 as the Amarādevipañha, is, however, called Channapathapañha in the Umaṅga Jātaka itself, where it actually occurs in the story. J.vi.365‑6.
