An Arahant. In the time of Atthadassī Buddha he was a yakkha, and, learning that the Buddha had died before he could pay him homage, he was filled with grief. The Buddha’s disciple, Sāgara, advised him to honour the Buddha’s thūpa, and this he did for five years.
He is probably identical with Ekudāniya Thera. ThagA.i.153 f.
