A chapter in the Apadāna (Ap.i.299 ff ) which gives incidents from several lives of the Bodhisatta in explanation of the reason for which the Buddha suffered in various ways during his last life -  e.g., from persecutions at the hands of his enemies and from various bodily ills. Most of the incidents mentioned are not to be found in the Jātakas.

This chapter is described as a Buddhāpadāna (Ibid., 301), but there is no reference either to it or to the incidents recounted in the chapter entitled Buddhāpadāna which is found at the beginning of the Apadāna.

See also Pilotikamma.
