Pupphathūpiya Thera

An Arahant. In the time of Vipassī Buddha he was a brahmin ascetic on Kukkura-pabbata with a large number of disciples. Hearing of the Buddha’s appearance in the world, he wished to visit him, but fell ill on the way. He thereupon erected a thūpa of flowers in the Buddha’s name and died soon after.

Forty-four world-cycles ago he was king sixteen times under the name of Aggisama, and thirty-eight times under that of Ghatāsana. Ap.i.155 f.
