The Bodhisatta was once the youngest of the hundred sons of Brahmadatta, king of Benares. He had, as far as could be seen, no chance of being king, but on seeking the counsel of a Pacceka Buddha and following his advice, he became king 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.
