J.397 Manoja Jaataka The bodhisatva was once a lion and had a son called Manoja. One day Manoja, in spite of his fatherís warnings, made friends with a jackal called Giriya. Acting on Giriyaís suggestion, Manoja went in search of horse flesh and attacked the kingís horses. The king engaged the services of an archer who shot Manoja as he was making off with a horse. Manoja managed to reach his den, but there he fell down dead. The circumstances in which the Jataka are related are very similar to those of the Mahilamukha Jataka (J.026). 59/216 Jaataka Khuddhaka J.iii.321ff. disobedience, bad company
