J.188 Siihako.t.thuka Jaataka | Siihako.t.tha Jaataka The bodhisatva was once a lion and had a cub by a she-jackal. The cub looked like his father but sounded like his mother. One day, after rain, when the lions were gambolling and roaring together, the cub thought to roara too, but only yelped like a jackal. Thereupon all the lions fell silent. When the bodhisatva was told of this by another cub he advised the jackal-cub to keep quiet. The Jataka was related in reference to Kokalikaís attempt to preach. Kokalika is identified with the jackal-voiced cub and Rahula with his brother. 57/213 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.108ff. knowing one's own weaknesses
