J.172 Daddara Jaataka Once the bodhisatva was a lion and dwelt with his retinue in Rajatuguha, while in a neighbouring cave lived a jackal. One day when the lions were roaring and playing about, the jackal tried to imitate them and the lions became silent for very shame. The Jataka was told in reference to Kokalika who, trying to imitate the eloquence of the learned monks of Manosila, failed miserably. The jackal is identified with Kokalika. 57/130 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.065ff. arrogance
