Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Khurappa Jātaka:Once the Bodhisatta was a forester,head of five hundred others.They hired themselves out to guide men through the forest.One day,while conducting a caravan,robbers fell on them and all but the Bodhisatta fled; he remained and drove the robbers off.When asked how he could do this,he replied that he who would do heroic deeds must contemn life.



The story was related in reference to a monk who had lost energy in his duties (J.ii.335f).
