Ramanīyakuṭika Thera

An Arahant. He was a nobleman of Vesāli and left the world after hearing the Buddha teach the Ratana Sutta. After ordination, he dwelt in a pleasant hut in a beautiful forest, where he won Arahantship. One day some women tried to tempt him, but in vain (Thag.58; ThagA.i.122 f ).

His first desire to attain liberation was made in the time of Padumuttara Buddha. Later he gave a beautiful seat to Atthadassī Buddha and offered him flowers in homage. One hundred and seventy world-cycles ago he was a king named Sandimā (Sannibbāpaka). He is probably identical with Āsanupaṭṭhāyaka Thera of the Apadāna. Ap.i.144.
