Sažetak

Jātakas or stories of Buddha´s previous existences have a distinctive place in the history of Buddhist literature. The article brings forth the selection of Mahāvastu´s jātakas, all of which as its main subject have a previous encounter of Buddha and tempter Māra. The attempt will be made to explain the insistence of authors/ compilators of Mahāvastu on showing that almost every event in Buddha´s life has its parallel in some of his previous existences and to demonstrate how the cultivation of the Perfection of wisdom was understood as an essential requirement for Buddha´s victory over Māra in the night of his Enlightenment. Also, the author will try to show that jātakas illustrate Buddha´s skilfulness in teaching.
