J.135 Candaabha Jaataka The bodhisatva was once an ascetic and, at the moment of his death, answered his disciplesí inquiries with the words ësunlight and moonlightí. When his chief pupil (identified with Sariputta) interpreted the words, his colleagues did not believe him until the Bodhisatva appeared in mid-air and said that whoever meditated on the sun and the moon would be reborn in the Abhassara world. The Jataka was preached about the interpretation of a problem by Sariputta at the gates of Sankassa. 56/534 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.i.474ff. fools
