Asanabodhiya Thera

An Arahant. In the time of Tissa Buddha he planted the Asana-tree, which was the Buddha’s Bodhi-tree, and tended it for five years. The Buddha was very pleased with him and foretold for him a glorious future.

For thirty world-cycles he dwelt among the devas; seventy-seven world-cycles ago he was a Cakkavatti named Daṇḍasena, and one world-cycle later he was seven times king under the name of Samantanemi.

Twenty-five world-cycles ago he was a khattiya, Puṇṇaka by name. Ap.i.110‑11.
