|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．
