Isisinga, Sohn von the Bodhisatta und of a doe, who had drunk water into which the Bodhisatta's semen had fallen, lebte der Asket life like seinVater. He had been warned by seinVater about the wiles of women, und lebte in the Wald practising the most severe Askese. By virtue of the power of these Askese, Sakka's abode trembled, und Sakka, fearing seinrivalry, sent down a schön celestial nymph, Alambusā, to tempt ihm und despoil ihm of seinvirtue.

This she succeeded in doing, und for drei Jahre he lay unconscious in her embrace. At last, realising what had happened, he forthwith forsook sensual desire, und developing mystic meditation, attained to jhāna. Alambusā pleaded for forgiveness, which was readily granted. Die Geschichte bezog sich auf in reference to the temptation of ein Mönch by the wife he had had during seinlay life (J.v.152-61. Siehe auch the Nalinikā J. (v.193f.) where Isisinga is tempted by Nalinikā).

In the Digha Nikāya Kommentar (ii.370; siehe auch Sp.i.214. Vergl. the story of Rsyasrnga in the Ramayana i.9. Die Geschichte is found in the Bharhut Tope, siehe Cunningham, CSB.29, P1.15) the name of der Asket is given as Migasingi, und the story is quoted as an instance of a wrong explanation of the cessation of consciousness.
