J.017 Maaluta Jaataka Once, two friends, a lion and a tiger, lived in a cave. They had a dispute as to which was the cold part of the month, the full-moon quarter or the new-moon quarter, and they referred the matter to a hermit (the bodhisatva) who said that the cold was caused by the wind and not by the moon. The story was told of two forest-dwelling monks of Kosala, Kala and Junha, who consulted the Buddha in a similar dispute. The lion and the tiger are identified with the monks. 55/265 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.i.164ff. causality
