Ukkhittapadumiya Thera

An Arahant.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he had been a garland-maker of Haṃsavatī. Once while he was picking lotuses in a pond, the Buddha appeared before him with numerous disciples. The garland-maker picked a lotus and threw it up into the air, wishing it to remain above the Buddha’s head; by the Buddha’s power it did thus remain. As a result, the garland-maker was reborn in Tāvatiṃsa in a palace named Satapatta.

A thousand times he was king of the devas and five hundred times king of men. Ap.i.275 f.
