Araka Jātaka (No.169)

The Bodhisatta was once born in a brahmin’s family and was named Araka; when he grew up he embraced the religious life and lived in the Himavā as a teacher with a large following. He taught his pupils the value of the four sublime abidings (brahmavihāra). After his death he was born in the Brahma-world and remained there for seven aeons.

The story was told to the monks at Jetavana in reference to the Mettā Sutta (J.ii.60‑2).
