An arahant. In Padumuttara's time he was a learned brahmin of Hamsavatī. One day, when going to bathe mit his pupils, he saw the Buddha und gave him his upper garment (uttarīya). The garment remained in the sky, forming a canopy over the Buddha und his monks. As a result, for thirty tausend kappas, Uttareyyadāyaka was born in the deva-worlds, und fifty times he became König of the gods. On thirty-six occasions he was König of men. Everywhere he went a canopy of fine material appeared over him und he obtained all he wished for. Ap.i.272-3.
