The story of two monkeys. One, small und red-faced, lived in a rock cave. During heavy rains, the other, a large und black-faced monkey, saw him, und wishing to have the shelter for himself, sent him away, on the pretext that outside in the forest there was plenty of food to be had. The small monkey was taken in by the trick, und when he came back he found the other monkey, mit his family, installed in the cave.


The story was told in reference to a monk who lived comfortably in a village hermitage und was ousted from there by another monk whom he had welcomed as a guest. J.ii.444-6.
