The story was told in reference to a monk who had killed a wild goose. Two monks bathed in Aciravatī, and while standing on the bank, drying, they saw two geese appear. The monks took a bet as to which should hit the goose in the eye, and one of them threw a stone which pierced one eye and came out of the other. The monk was reported to the Buddha. (Kurudhamma Jataka No-276)
The Bodhisatta was once born as the son of Dhananjaya, king of the Kurus, and, after his fathers death, reigned in Indapatta. He observed the Kurudhamma - that is to say, the pancasila - as did the queen mother, his queen consort, the viceroy, the chaplain, the kings driver, his charioteer, the treasurer, the keeper of the royal granaries, the palace porter and the courtesan of the city.
