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

The Bodhisatta was once an ascetic who, at the moment of his death, said neither conscious nor unconscious. His chief disciple interpreted these words, but the others would not believe him until the Bodhisatta descended from the Brahma world in order to uphold his explanation.

The story was related in reference to an explanation given by Sariputta at Sankassa (J.i.473).

This Jataka is probably also called the Anangana Jataka (q.v.).
