Devadatta's rival group of monks

Story of the Buddha - No. 70

70. Devadatta's rival group of monks
70. Devadatta ignored the Buddha’s warning, led away a group of monks and made himself their leader. One day, when Devadatta was asleep, the Buddha’s chief disciple Sariputta came and warned the monks about the consequences of evil actions. The monks realised their mistake and returned to the Buddha. When Devadatta woke up he was so angry that he became ill. Eventually, he began to regret his actions, and he asked his servants to take him to see the Buddha. But he died unexpectedly on the way there.
