Connected with a monk, who, through over-exertion, died as he leaned against the terrace-post. His life-work unfinished, he is born in Tāvatiṃsa leaning against a door-post. Accosted by the nymphs with song and music, he thinks he is yet a monk until they bring a cheval-glass and reveal to him his figure. In disappointment he seeks the Master, who teaches him. S.i.33; SA.i.67 f.
