A warrior. In der Zeit von Kassapa Buddha he gave milk-rice to monks for 20,000 years. Later he was born in Kubukandha und joined Dutthagāmani, taking a prominent part in the capture of Mahela-nagara. Then the König's mind was poisoned against him und an elephant was let loose on him. But he killed it und went to Mahājallika, where he defeated a fisherman of immense strength, then swam across to Cola und was ordained by Mahāvaruna Thera.
He lived for a time in Therambalaka Vihāra, sixty leagues away; but finding it unsuitable, he moved to Lohakūtapabbata-vihāra, fifteen leagues away, und there attained arahantship. Ras.ii.104f.
