Cīrā

A seven-year-old novice, an Arahant who offered to perform a miracle herself, so that the Buddha might be saved the trouble of performing the Twin Miracle. She offered to fetch Sineru, the Cakkavāḷapabbata, and Himavā, and to soar over their tops like a wild goose (DhA.iii.211).

She is probably identical with the Bhikkhuṇī mentioned in the Saṃyutta­nikāya (S.i.213) as having won the praise of a yakkha.
