Bherivāda Jātaka (No.59)

The Bodhisatta was once a drummer, and having gone one day, with his son, to a great festival where he had earned much money, was returning through a forest infested by robbers. The boy kept on beating the drum, though his father tried to stop him, saying, “Beat it only now and again, as if some great lord were passing by.” At first the robbers were scared away, but they soon discovered that the two were alone and robbed them of their money.

The story was told to a self-willed monk who is identified with the youth of the story. J.i.283‑4.
