Devatāpañha Jātaka (No.350)

The questions of the goddess (devatāpañha) or Devatāpañha Jātaka (Ja.iii.152). The Commentary states that the story will be explained in the Umaṅga Jātaka.

The Umaṅga Jātaka contains a series of questions asked of King Vedeha by the goddess who lived in his parasol, because she wished to restore Mahosadha to the king’s favour. Videha inquired of all his wise men, but they could find no answers, and, in the end, he was compelled to send for Mahosadha. The questions, in the form of riddles, were put to him, and he answered them all. (Ja.vi.370 f; the riddles with answers are found at p.376 f).
