The story of Mallikā, wife of Bandhula, who, after death, was born in a wonderful palace in Tāvatiṃsa, surrounded by all manner of luxuries.
This was chiefly as a result of her having offered her Mahālatāpasādhana in honour of the Buddha, after his death.
Mahā-Moggallāna met her in Tāvatiṃsa and heard her story. Vv.iii.8; VvA.165 ﬀ.
