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

The Bodhisatta was once the youngest of the hundred sons of Brahmadatta, king of Benares. He had, as far as could be seen, no chance of being king, but on seeking the counsel of a Pacceka Buddha and following his advice, he became king on his fathers death. For details reference is invited to the Takkasila Jataka, this evidently being another name for the Telapatta Jataka (q.v.).

This Jataka was related in reference to the attempts made by Maras daughters to tempt the Buddha as he sat under the Ajapala nigrodha. J.i.469ff.
