J.247 Paada~njali Jaataka Brahmadatta, king of Benares, had a son Paada~njali who was an idle loafer. When the king died, the courtiers headed by the bodhisatva who was the chaplain, went to test him. The boy sneered at everything with a superior air, whether it were right or wrong, and the bodhisatva were made king in his place. The story was related in reference to Laludayi, who once curled his lip in scorn when the two chief disciples were praised. Laludayi is identified with Paada~njali. 57/510 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.ii.263ff. arrogance
