Sutasoma

Sutasoma is an incarnation of the god Jina (ie Buddha). In his wanderings through the forest he commits acts of compassion, and so gains as followers Gajahwaktra ('Elephant Face'), a naga, and a tiger. Eventually he overcomes the demon Purusada, incarnation of Rudra, who threatens the world, overcoming him by non-violence.
