An Arahant. He was once a sorcerer (vijjādhara), and, having seen Sumedha Buddha flying through the air, offered him three flowers which remained suspended above the Buddha’s head.
He was reborn as a deva in a palace in Tāvatiṃsa called Kaṇikāra (Ap.ii.441 ﬀ).
He is probably identical with Uttara Thera. ThagA.i.241.
