Aji Darma

The Aji Darma or Angling Dharma (also Ari Dharma) narrates a series of tales revolving around the king, Angling Darma, who can understand the speech of the animals. The key parts of the story are his dealings with Naga Taksaka (Anantaboga in some versions) and his daughter, Nagini, who is caught having sex with a commoner snake; his refusal to tell his wife of his secret of how to hear the animals' speaking, leading to her suicide; his period of wandering in which he encounters the witches; and the story of demon who disguised himself as a brahmana.
