Phra Lak-Phra Lam
  A Previous Life of the Buddha

 

 
By dint of the divine power of Phra In, the raft was carried to a landing-stage near the dwelling of Chao Laksi, a rishi.  He harbored and adopted Nang Sida.

In no time, Nang Sida became a maiden of peerless beauty and the beloved of all the "one hundred and one" Muang far and wide.  She was thought fit to be mated with none but a hero, who had sufficient prowess to offer her as a marriage gift.  Chao Laksi declared to everybody that whoever could raise his magic bow and arrow, would be honoured with the hand of Nang Sida.

 

 
When this news reached Phra Lak and Phra Lam in the kingdom of Chanthabouri Si Sattanak, the two brothers started for the rishi's dwelling, on their marvellous horse, named Manikap.
