An Arahant. Ninety-four world-cycles ago he had seen the Pacceka Buddha Kosika, in Himavā, engaged in meditation, and for seven days he had one hundred torches kept lighted near the Buddha. On the eighth day he gave alms to the Pacceka Buddha. As a result he was born in Tusita, and from his body rays of light issued, spreading one hundred leagues.
Fifty-five world-cycles ago he reigned as king of Jambudīpa, with his capital in Sobhana, built by Vissakamma himself, entirely of gold. Ap.ii.414‑15.
