Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Veluka Jātaka:The Bodhisatta was once at the head of five hundred hermits,one of whom had a pet viper which was called Veluka,because it was kept in a bamboo.The Bodhisatta warned the ascetic against the snake,but his warning was unheeded.The hermit thus came to be called Velukapitā.One day the hermits went into the forest and were away for a few days,and when Velukapitā touched the viper on his return,the animal,hungry and angry,bit him,and he fell down dead.The story was told in reference to a headstrong monk who is identified with Velukapitā.J.i.245f.
