König of Benares. He had only one son, of whom he was extremely fond. One day when the König was enjoying himself in the royal park, the boy was suddenly taken ill und died at once. Lest the König should die of a broken heart, the ministers did not tell him for two days. Der König thereupon reflected on the nature of death und developing insight became a Pacceka Buddha.

His verse is included in the Khaggavisāna Sutta. Sn.v.41; SnA.i.85f; ApA.i.138.
