Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)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.
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
