Piyaṅkara

A little boy yakkha. While his mother, with him on her hip, was seeking for food at night, she came unexpectedly to Jetavana where Anuruddha was reciting some verses. The sound pleased her and she stood “smitten to the marrow, like a post,” hushing to sleep her child who was whimpering for food. S.i.209; also Vism.382; DA.ii.509; and PSA.79, where she is called a vimāna peta.

Piyaṅkara Sutta.– The incident referred to above in S.i.209, is also mentioned in the Commentary to the Mahānidāna Sutta (DA.ii.509)
