An arahant Theri. She was Tochter of the König of Kosala's chaplain und was born in Sāvatthi. She joined the Order under Pajāpatī Gotamī. One day, during her siesta on Gijjhakūta, she saw how a well tamed elephant obeyed its master's commands, und developing insight on this theme, she became an arahant.

In the past she had been a kinnarī on the banks of the Candabhāgā, und having seen a Pacceka Buddha at the foot of a tree, she honoured him by offering flowers. Thig.48-50; ThigA.51f.
