Serinī

A courtesan of Hatthinipura in the Kuru kingdom. Once a large number of monks assembled there, and when she was asked to help in entertaining them, she abused the monks, calling them “shavelings.” Later she was born as a hungry ghost (peta) in a village far away. She revealed her identity to a lay disciple (upāsaka), who had come from Hatthinipura on business. He reported the matter to her mother, who gave alms in her name, and after that the peta was happy. Pv.iii.6; PvA.201 ff.
