Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kañcanakkhandha Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once born as a farmer and,while ploughing his field,came upon a nugget of gold,four cubits long and as thick as a man’s thigh,which had been buried by a merchant in bygone days.Finding it impossible to remove the gold as a whole,he cut it into four and carried it home easily.

The story was related in reference to a monk who wished to leave the Order because he was frightened by all the rules his teachers asked him to learn and obey.The Buddha gave him three rules - to guard voice,body and mind - and the monk won arahantship.Even a heavy burden becomes light if carried piece by piece.J.i.276-8.
