J.229 Palaayi Jaataka Once the bodhisatva was king of Takkasila. Brahmadatta, king of Benares, marched against his city with a large army, hoping to capture it -- but on seeing the towers on the city gates, he took fright and fled. The story was related in reference to a mendicant who loved arguing. He could find no-one to contradict him until he came to Savatthi, where the Buddha was in residence. Forthwith, he set off for Jetavana, but on seeing the gate towers, he fled. See also the Dutiya Palaayi Jataka (J.230). 57/422 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.216ff. fear at sight
