Story about two brothers citta and sambhūta who were born in a poor family, but were brought up by a king in his palace for education. When they were grown up they were returned to their parent's home. They were fed up with poor life, so they move to another country, where there were many Brahmana and rich people. They met a professor from a university (Takkasīla) who taught them higher education. Even then, they were still fed up with life, so they went into forest and lived there until they died.
