Janasandha Jātaka (No.468)
The Bodhisatta was once born as Janasandha, son of Brahmadatta, king of
Benares. He studied at Takkasilā. On becoming
king he built six almonries and there daily distributed six thousand pieces of
money. He ruled righteously and his kingdom was free from all wickedness. On the
fifteenth day of every month he assembled all his people, beginning with the
women of his household, and preached to them the ways of righteousness.
The story was related to Pasenadi when he
gave himself up to sin, became remiss in his duties and refrained from visiting
even the Buddha for a long time. J. iv.176ff.
