One of the chief ministers at Sāvatthi. He joined the Order of monks and his wife became a nun. They had their meals together and she waited on him, fetching him water and fanning him. He forbade her to wait on him as it was improper and, angered by his words, she poured the water over his head and struck him with the fan. For this she was rebuked by the Buddha. Vin.iv.263.
