Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Gandatindu Jātaka:Pañcāla,king of Kampilla,is a wicked monarch,and his subjects,harassed by his officers,suffer great oppression.The Bodhisatta,born as the divinity of a gandatindu-tree,becoming aware of this,appears in the king’s bedchamber and urges him to give up his evil ways and find out for himself the condition of his subjects.The king,taking this advice,travels about in disguise with his chaplain.Everywhere he finds men,women and even the beasts cursing his very name.He returns to the capital and devotes himself to good works (J.v.98ff).

The introductory story is given in theRājovāda Jātaka.
