while the Blessed One dwelt at Kosambi, a certain bhikkhu was accused of having committed an offence , and as he refused to acknowledge it the brotherhood pronounced against him the sentence of expulsion. Then the Blessed One rose and went to the brethren who sided with the expeled brother and said to them: “Do not think, O bhikkhus, that if you have given offence you need not atone for it, thinking: We are without offence. when a bhikkhu has committed an offence, which he considers no offence while the brotherhood consider him guilty, he should think: these brethren know the Dhamma and the rules of the order; they are learned, wise, intelligent, modest, conscientious,and ready to submit themselves to discipline; it is impossible that they should on my account act with selfishness or in malice or in delusion or in fear. Let him stand in awe of causing divisions, and rather acknowledge his offence on the authority of his brethren.

Nikakshu was descendant of janmejaya and was instrumental in bringing the Bharata dynasty to this place King Satanika Paranatapa belonged to this dynasty. His son was king Udena(Udaya), who was a contemporary of the Buddha. Udena’s son Bodhiraja Kumara was more faithful to the Buddha than his father. He invited the Buddha to inaugurate his new plalace, Kokanada, built at Samsumaragiri in the Bhagga country teh Buddha, after taking meals in his palace delivered to the prince a discourse in Which he explained the austerities did not always lead to happiness. He himself practiced them and found this to be so. He then explained to him that as a person needed faith, energy, straight forwardness and good health for learning any worldly act or craft, so also a monk needed them to attain perfection in knowledge.
