Tuṇḍila

1. Tuṇḍila.– Brother of the courtesan Kālī. He was a ne’er-do-well, and Kālī, having helped him with money which he proceeded to squander, refused to give him any more. However, a patron of Kālī, seeing his condition, gave him his clothes on entering Kālī’s house — it being the custom for those who patronised a courtesan, to be provided with clothes during their stay in her house — and had to walk away naked.

Takkāriya Jātaka. J.iv.248 f.

2. Tuṇḍila.– A parrot, who had a tiger as friend. For their story see Ras.i.36.
