Mahāparivāra Thera

An Arahant. In the time of Vipassī Buddha he was a yakkha chief and, seeing the Buddha enter Bandhumatī with a large following of monks, offered his upper garment and worshipped him. The earth trembled with the force of his wish. Fifteen world-cycles ago he was king sixteen times under the name of Vāhana (Ap.i.146 f). He is probably identical with Pakkha Thera. ThagA.i.144 f.
