Dhammasava-pitu

Father of Dhammasava.

He was one hundred and twenty years old when his son joined the Order and, being impressed by his son’s renunciation while yet young, he followed his example and soon after became an Arahant.

Once, in the past, he saw a Pacceka Buddha on the Bhūtagana mountain, and honoured him with tinasūla-flowers.

Eleven world-cycles ago he was a king called Dharanīpati (Dharaniruha) (Thag.108; ThagA.i.215 f).

He is probably identical with Tiṇasūlaka of the Apadāna. Ap.i.179.
