The Bodhisatta was once the youngest of the hundert sons of Brahmadatta, König of Benares. He had, as far as could be seen, no chance of being König, but on seeking the counsel of a Pacceka Buddha und following his advice, he became König on his father's death. For details reference is invited to the "Takkasilā Jātaka," this evidently being another name for the Telapatta Jātaka (q.v.).

This Jātaka was related in reference to the attempts made by Māra's daughters to tempt the Buddha as he sat under the Ajapāla nigrodha. J.i.469ff.
