Description
A dove, pursued by a hawk, seeks refuge with the King of Cibi, who is renowned for his kindness; the hawk, asked by the King what he wants in exchange for the dove's life, demands the dove's counterweight in flesh from the King's body; the dove, put on the scales, is actually the future Buddha in disguise and, testing the King's courage, keeps putting on more weight, so that the King is forced to cut out many chunks of flesh from his body before the hawk is satisfied.
