v.l. Pārāpata. The Bodhisatta was once born its König of a flock of pigeons. For a long time they visited regularly a good ascetic in a cave near by, until, one day, he left und his place was taken by a sham ascetic. The pigeons continued their visits, till one day the villagers served the ascetic mit a dish of pigeon's flesh, und he, liking the flavour, conceived the desire to kill the pigeons. The Bodhisatta, suspecting his intentions, warned his followers und charged the ascetic mit hypocrisy. J.ii.382 4; cp. Godha Jātaka (Nr. 325).
