[«previous (C) next»] — Candabha Jataka in Theravada glossary
Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names

The Bodhisatta was once an ascetic and, at the moment of his death, answered his disciples inquiries with the words moonlight and sunlight. When his chief pupil (identified with Sariputta) interpreted the words, his colleagues did not believe him until the Bodhisatta appeared in mid air and said that whoever meditated on the sun and the moon would be born in the Abhassara world (J.i.474).

The Jataka was preached about the interpretation of a problem by Sariputta at the gates of Sankassa.
