Darīmukha Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once born as Brahmadatta,son of the king ofMagadha.He studied atTakkasilā with his friend Darīmukha,son of the king’s purohita.Once,while travelling,they came toBenares and there,while resting in the king’s garden,Brahmadatta fell asleep and Darīmukha,who perceived certain omens which foretold kingship for his friend,left him,and having become a Pacceka Buddha,retired to Nandamūlaguhā.Brahmadatta became king of Benares and,in his glory,forgot Darīmukha for many,many years.When fifty years had passed Darīmukha visited the king and preached to him on Renunciation.Later,Brahmadatta also became an ascetic.
