Son of a wealthy brahmin of Rājagaha. He heard the Buddha teach at Veḷuvana and, having entered the Order, practised meditation in a wooded spot, ultimately achieving Arahantship.
In the time of Vipassī Buddha he offered him flowers in homage (Thag.22; ThagA.i.77).
He is probably identical with Tīṇikiṅkinipupphiya Thera of the Apadāna. Ap.ii.433.
