The king hare, Silimukha asked his ambassador Vijaya to tell the elephant to go somewhere else. Vijaya stood up and told Chaturdanta that he had defiled the lake and killed his people and he would be punished if this happened again. Chaturdanta then swore an oath that no elephant should kill a hare again.
