Having proven his miraculous powers, Buddha was invited to dinner by King Bimbisara, wishing to become his disciple. While on his way, a young Brahman appeared guiding him toward the palace, singing verses in his honor accompanied by a drum. It was Indra himself expressing his admiration for Buddha; for another example, see H. Ingholt, Gandharan Art in Pakistan, 1957, cat. no. 91, p. 74.
