Dummukha

1. Dummukha.– A Licchavi chieftain. He was present at the discussion of the Nigaṇṭha Saccaka with the Buddha, and seeing Saccaka discomfited in the debate, Dummukha compared him to a crab pulled out of a pond and ill-treated by village boys (M.i.234).

The Commentary says (MA.i.459) that Dummukha (ugly) just happened to be his name. He was in reality quite handsome.

2. Dummukha.– King of Kampilla in Uttarapañcāla. One day, while looking from his window down on to the palace yard, he saw several bulls setting upon a cow in lust, and one bull, stronger than the rest, killed another with his horns. The king, realising the evil nature of lust, entered into a trance and became a Pacceka Buddha. J.iii.379, 381.
