3. Dārakā pupphāni saṃharitvā mātulassa datvā hasanti
not both verbs were translated as gerund, but only the first one:
Children, having collected flowers, give (them) to the uncle and laugh.
My translation (into Serbian) was something like this:
Having collected flowers and having given (them) to the uncle, children laugh.

Isn't it better here to translate "pasīditvā" with "having faith (or confidence)" [in Buddha], which would be locative case.
