Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Daddabha Jātaka:Once a timid hare lying at the foot of a vilva tree heard a vilva fruit fall on a palm-leaf and,imagining that the world was collapsing,started to run.Other animals,alarmed by the sight,ran also until all the beasts of the forest were in headlong flight.The Bodhisatta,born as a lion,heard their story and calmed their fears.

The story was related in reference to a question asked of the Buddha by some monks,as to various austerities practised by ascetics.J.iii.74ff.The Jātaka is quoted at MA.i.313f.
