Paripuṇṇaka Thera

He belonged to a Sākyan family of Kapilavatthu, and was so called because of the completeness of his gifts and fortune. His means allowed him to enjoy, at all times, food of one hundred flavours. On hearing that the Buddha lived on a very simple diet, he renounced the world, and entering the Order, became an Arahant.

He had been a householder in the time of Dhammadassī Buddha and had offered various gifts at his shrine. Ninety-four world-cycles ago he was king sixteen times under the name of Thūpasikhara (Thag.vs.91; ThagA.i.190 f). He is probably identical with Thambāropaka of the Apadāna. Ap.i.171.
