The story of a slave-woman of Sāvatthi. Her master heard the Buddha teach, and gave alms every day to four monks. She was entrusted with this duty, which she discharged conscientiously. For sixteen years she observed the precepts, and one day, after listening to the Dhamma, she became a Stream-winner.
After death, she was born as one of Sakka’s companions and met Mahā-Moggallāna, to whom she related her story. Vv.ii.1; VvA.91 ﬀ.
