J.311 Pucimanda Jaataka Once the bodhisatva was a tree sprite in a nimba-tree in a cemetary. One day when a robber with stolen goods came in front of the tree, he drove the robber away, lest he should be discovered and impaled on a stake from the tree. When the kingís officials came looking for the robber, they could therefore not find him and went away. Nearby was a bodhi-tree whose tree sprite was Sariputta. The story was related to Moggallana, who saw a man lurking near his cell, and, feeling suspicious, drove him away. Later, his suspicions were confirmed by the arrival of the kingís men. 58/444 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.iii.033ff. association
