The story is very similar to that of the Culla-Nārada Jātaka (q.v.). The girl tried to seduce the young ascetic when his father was away und take him back mit her to the haunts of men, but he told her to go on, saying that he would follow after taking leave of his father. When the latter heard his story und learnt his intention, he exhorted the youth not to be ensnared by thoughts of lust. His son realized his folly und remained in the hermitage. J.iii.524-6.
