Brahmadatta, König of Benares, had a son Pādañjali, who was an idle loafer. When the König died, the courtiers, headed by the Bodhisatta who was the chaplain, went to test him. At everything the boy sneered mit a superior air, whether it were right or wrong; und the Bodhisatta was made König in his stead.

The story was related in reference to Lāludāyī, who once curled his lip in scorn when the two chief disciples were praised. LāIudāyi is identified mit Pādañjali. J.ii.263f.
