One day the Buddha appeared before her in a ray of glory and uttered a stanza, at the conclusion of which she became an Arahant (Thig.4; ThigA.11).

A minister, displeased with them, had the cow confiscated by the king; but the king discovering that Tissā alone could milk her, asked her for her story, and gave them great rewards, making the minister their slave.
