Cullabodhi Jataka | Of a series of panels depicting the Jataka Tales on the walls opposite the main entrance to the Mahabodhi Vihar (महाबोधि विहार) (literally: "Great Awakening Temple"), Bodh Gaya, Bihar, India.
The Bodhisatta, by the name of Bodhi, was once born in a very rich family of Kasi and studied Taksasila. His parents married him to a suitable wife. After his parent's death, the two distributed their wealth and became ascetics. One day, they went to the king's park, and there the king fell in love with the woman and carried her away by force to the palace. When he told the Bodhisatta of this, he showed no resentment at all. In the palace, the king found that he count not win the woman's love, and returned to the park curious to know whether the ascetic really meant what he said. In the course of conversation, the Bodhisatta told the king that he did not give way to anger because anger once awakened is difficult to curb.
This story the Master told in Jetavana, about a monk of violent temper. This man, after having become an ascetic, following the doctrine which leads to salvation with all its blessings, was unable to control his passion. Because of his passionate nature, he was always full of resentment—at the slightest annoyance, he grew angry, flew into a fit of rage, and would remain bitter and obstinate. The Master, hearing of his passionate behavior, sent for him and asked, was it true that he was passionate as rumor had it. "Yes, Sir," replied the man. "Brother," the Master said, "passion must be restrained; such an ill-doer has no place either in this world or the next. Why dost thou, after embracing the salvation of the Supreme Buddha, who knows not passion, why dost thou show thyself passionate? Wise men of old, even those who embraced a religion other than ours, have refrained from anger." And he told him an old-world tale: The Cullabodhi Jataka. 🙏
