J.093 Vissaasabhojana Jaataka The bodhisatva was once a rich merchant and had a herdsman guard his cows in a forest shelter. They gave only little milk through fear of a lion which lived in the forest. The merchant knew that the lion loved a doe, had her caught and rubbed her body with poison. When she returned to the forest, the lion licked her body and died. The Buddha related this story to the monks to show them the necessity for circumspection in accepting gifts. 56/339 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.i.387ff. trojan horse
