Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Makkata Jātaka:Once the Bodhisatta was a learned brahmin of Kāsi,and,when his wife died,he retired with his son to the Himālaya,where they lived the ascetic life.One day during a heavy shower of rain,a monkey,wishing to gain admission to the ascetics’ hut,put on the bark dress of a dead ascetic and stood outside the door.The son wished to admit him,but the Bodhisatta recognised the monkey and drove him a way.The boy is identified with Rāhula (J.ii.68 f).

The circumstances in which the story was related are given in the Uddāla Jātaka (q.v.).
