Okilinī Sutta

The story of a hungry ghost (peta) mentioned in the Lakkhaṇa Saṃyutta.

She was seen going through the air, parched and sooty, uttering cries of distress. Mahā-Moggallāna declares (S.ii.260; SA.ii.163) that she had once been the head queen of a king of Kāliṅga.

One day, seeing the king show fondness for a dancer who was massaging him, she was moved with jealousy and scattered a brazier of coals over the woman’s head.
