JAJALI. [Source: Dowson's Classical Dictionary of Hindu Mythology] A Brahman mentioned in the Mahabharata as having by asceticism acquired a supernatural power of locomotion, of which he was so proud that he deemed himself perfect in virtue and superior to all men. A voice from the sky told him that he was inferior to Tuladhara, a Vaisya and a trader. He went to this Tuladhara and learnt wisdom from him.
