King Pasenadi Kosala.  One day the King dreamt sixteen unusual dreams and was greatly perturbed in mind, not knowing their true significance.  His brahmin advisers interpreted them to be dreams portending evil and instructed him to make an elaborate animal sacrifice to ward off the dangers resulting therefrom.
