J.184 Giridanta Jaataka King Sama of Benares had a state horse ëPandavaí whose trainer was the lame Giridanta. Observing that his trainer limped, the horse imitated him. When the king saw the horse limping, not being able to discover the reason, he asked his advisor, the Bodhisatva, to investigate the matter. The Bodhisatva reported that it was the result of association with fools, and had the trainer replaced by another. The trainer was Devadatta. For the introductory story see the Mahilamukha Jataka (J.026). 57/192 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.098ff. association with fools
