While they were grooming it, the goat started to laugh with a sound like a pot smashing. Then, just as strangely, it started to weep loudly.
The young students were amazed at this behavior. "Why did you suddenly laugh," they asked the goat, "and why do you now cry so loudly?"

The students hurriedly took the goat back to their master and told him what had happened at the river. Hearing the story, the master himself asked the goat why it had laughed and why it had wept.
"In times past, Brahmin," the goat began, "I was a Brahmin who taught the Vedas like you. I, too, sacrificed a goat as an offering for a Feast for the Dead. Because of killing that single goat, I have had my head cut off 499 times. I laughed aloud when I realized that this is my last birth as an animal to be sacrificed. Today I will be freed from my misery.

- NOTE: A synonym for "many" is 500. This is the way it is literally translated but should not be misunderstood as meaning exactly 500. Therefore, 499 means "one less than the number to complete 'many.' This is very common. What for simplicity's sake is done as a shorthand should not be mistaken as literal.
