was a Brahmin and a general. Because he was devoted to
Buddhism, which forbids killing, he was ordered by the
king to become a monk. He
joined a monastery in the mountains where he could hear
a tiger howling every day. He said that the tiger was
probably hungry and should be fed some vegetarian food.
Otherwise the tiger might become a man-eater. So
Pindola collected food from the monks and put it in a
bucket which he left outside the monastery. The tiger
did come for the food every night. After a period of time,
the tiger was tamed. Thus Pindola was referred to as the
Taming Tiger Lohan.
