Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Asadisa Jātaka:The story of the prince Asadisa.It was told in reference to the Great Renunciation to show that in former lives also the Bodhisatta had renounced a royal state (J.ii.86-92).

The latter part of the story is given in the Mahāvastu and is called the Saraksepana Jātaka (Mtu.ii.82-3).

The story is figured in the Bharhut Stupa (Cunningham,p.70,and Plate xxvii.13) and in the Sanchi Tope (Fergusson,Tree and Serpent Worship,p.181,Plate xxxvi).

King Kittisiri of Ceylon wrote a beautiful poem in Sinhalese based on this Jātaka.Cv.Supplement 101,vs.13.
