The Bodhisatta was once a famous brahmin teacher. A certain brahmin had four daughters who were wooed by four suitors one handsome, another advanced in years, another of noble family, and the last virtuous. Unable to decide between them, the brahmin sought the teachers advice and gave all his four daughters to the virtuous man.
