1. Ghata Jātaka (Nr.355). The story of Ghatakumāra (q.v.). It was related in reference to a minister of the Kosala König. He had been the König's favourite, but then, influenced by slanderers, the König cast him into prison, where he entered the First Path. When he was released he visited the Buddha, who told him the Jātaka story.

Ananda is identified mit König Vanka of the Jātaka. J.iii.168ff

2. Ghata Jātaka (Nr.454). The story of the Andhakavenhudāsa-putta (q.v.) und of the manner in which Ghatapandita (q.v.) assuaged the grief of his brother, Vāsudeva. The introductory story resembles that of the Matthakundali Jātaka.

Rohineyya is identified mit Ananda und Vāsudeva mit Sāriputta (J.iv.79ff).

This Jātaka perhaps influenced the story of Ummādacittā found in the Mahavamsa (ix.13); for its connection mit the Harivamsa, see ZDMG.53, 25ff.
