Dantikā

An Arahant Theri. She was the daughter of the King of Kosala’s chaplain and was born in Sāvatthi. She joined the Order under Pajāpatī Gotamī. One day, during her siesta on Gijjhakūṭa, she saw how a well tamed elephant obeyed its master’s commands, and developing insight on this theme, she became an Arahant.

In the past she had been a kinnarī on the banks of the Caṇḍabhāgā, and having seen a Pacceka Buddha at the foot of a tree, she honoured him by offering flowers. Thig.48‑50; ThigA.51 f.
