The name of a statue of the Buddha in the Abhayagiri-vihāra. King Dhātusena had a golden ornament made for it (Cv.xxxviii.67), and in the time of Kassapa I, a general (senāpati), named Migira, built a house for it (Cv.xxxix.6). Migāra also instituted a dedication festival for “Abhiseka Buddha.’’ Ibid., 40; see also Geiger’s trans, i.35, n.7; 36, n.2.
