Ja 243 Guttilajātaka
The Story about (the Heavenly Musician) Guttila

In the present Devadatta learned all he knew from the Buddha, but repudiated him. The Buddha tells a story of a musician who taught his pupil, only for the pupil to challenge him in public. When Sakka (who is also called Kosiya) found out, he helped the master win the contest and took him to heaven.
