In the city of Koutheinaron lived a certain personage holding heretical opinions. Everything being ready, they invited Phra, who by his silence testified his acceptance of their invitation. Her body shone like a beautiful statue of gold, and was three gawoots tall. He was like a bull, the horns of which have been broken.

    At last, owing to the influence of a former bad deed, Maukalan resigned himself into the hands of the ruffians, who put him to death. Many stories of these previous lives are depicted in the Jatakas. Like him, he is exceedingly beautiful, amiable, and lovely; he can fly through the air; he can teach the people and justly administer the law. In an instant, the five hundred pieces were set in a blaze, and presented the terrifying sight of five hundred large fires. Ananda was, as usual, directed to inform the Rahans to hold themselves ready for immediate departure. By surrounding the admission of candidates into the ranks of the order with a display of ceremonies, the shrewd framer of these regulations intended to encircle the whole body with a halo of dignity and sacredness, and at the same time to provide, as far as human wisdom allows, against the reception of unworthy postulants.

    I feel inclined to adopt the second supposition. They had scarcely departed, when a most violent disease seized Thariputra, which caused an abundant vomiting of blood, so great, indeed, that the vessel into which it flowed could not hold it. According to the later biographical legends, during the birth celebrations, the hermit seer Asita journeyed from his mountain abode, analyzed the child for the "32 marks of a great man" and then announced that he would either become a great king chakravartin or a great religious leader. Then he introduced into this country the alphabet now in use, and translated into the vernacular a portion of the scriptures. Having partaken of what he had received, he called Ananda, bade him take his mat and cushion, and follow him to the Tsapala dzedi, where he intended to spend a part of the day. The very room I was born in shall be the spot wherefrom I shall depart for the rest of Neibban.
