J.246 Telovaada Jaataka Once the bodhisatva was a brahmin ascetic. He came to a village for alms and was invited by a wealthy brahmin, who, after having given him food with fish, tried to annoy him by saying that the fish had been killed specially for him. The Bodhisatva said that he himself was entirely free from blame. The story was told in reference to Nigantha Nathaputta who sneered because the Buddha had consented to eat at the house of the general Siha. The wealthy brahmin is identified with Nathaputta. 57/507 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.262ff. killing, intention, vegetarianism
