Virūpakkha

1. Virūpakkha.– One of the Four Regent Kings (Cātummahārājāno). He is Regent of the western quarter and lord of the Nāgā (D.ii.258; D.iii.199; Dvy. 126, 148). In the assembly of the devas he sits facing east (D.ii.207, 221). Kāḷakaṇṇī is his daughter (J.iii.257). All Nāgā visit him regularly as their lord and wait on him, and any question of dispute arising among them would be referred to him for solution. e.g., J.vi.168; cf. AA.i.143.

2. Virūpakkha.– The name of a Nāga family (Vin.ii.109; A.ii.72; J.ii.145); they were, perhaps, followers of Virūpakkha.
