Tisaraṇāgamaniya Thera

An Arahant. In the time of Vipassī Buddha he was a householder in Bandhumatī, where he tended his blind parents. Being prevented by his parents’ affliction from joining the Order, he repeated the Three Refuges under a monk, named Nisabha, and honoured them throughout his life of one hundred thousand years. He was eighty times born as king of the gods. In this last life he was born in a rich family in Sāvatthi, and, having heard the Buddha teach, became an Arahant at the age of seventy-seven. Ap.i.74 f.
