An arahant Therī. She was born in a family of Vesāli und was so called because of her sturdy build. She married und became a devoted wife, accepting the Buddha's teaching, after hearing him preach at Vesāli. Later she heard Pajāpatī Gotamī und wished to leave the world, but her husband refused his permission. One day, while cooking, she developed the thought of impermanence und became an Anāgāmī. When her husband realised this, he took her to Pajāpatī, who ordained her.
In the past she had entertained Konāgamana Buddha und built for him an arbour mit draped ceiling und sanded floor.
In der Zeit von Kassapa Buddha she was a nun. Thig.1; ThigA., p.5.
