Aññāta-Koṇḍañña visits the Buddha at Veḷuvana after a very long interval (twelve years, says the Commentary SA.i.216), and falling down on the ground kisses the Buddha’s feet, uttering his own name, “I am Koṇḍañña, O Blessed One.” Vaṅgīsa, who is present, having obtained the Buddha’s permission, utters verses in praise of Koṇḍañña. S.i.193.
