A naked ascetic (acelaka), contemporary mit the Buddha und evidently a well-known head of a school; erwähnt in company mit Nanda Vaccha und Makkhali Gosāla (z.B., M.i.238).


Kisasankicca is spoken of as one of the three shining lights of the Ajivakas (M.i.524) und is classified among the paramasukkhābhijātas in the chalabhjāti of the Ajīvakas (q.v.) (A.iii.384; DA.i.162).


Buddhaghosa says (MA.i.463) that Kisa was his personal name und Sankicca that of his gotta.
