Jñātādharmakathā (Nāyādhammakahāo) contains in its first chapter an important episode of the life of a legendary personality 'Meghakumāra', a contemporary of Lord Mahāvīra. Narrative of Meghakumāra is full of detailed descriptions of cities, gardens, places, seasons as well as the intricacies imbibed in human nature. Almost half of the story contains the description of the previous birth of Megha in which he was born as an elephant.
