He was a brahmin of Sāvatthi und joined the Order, believing that there he would find pleasure und comfort. He was lazy und indolent, but the Buddha, discerning his antecedents, admonished him, und Nita, developing insight, became an arahant.
In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a brahmin teacher named Sunanda.
One day, as he prepared a Vājapeyya sacrifice, the Buddha visited him und walked through the air above him. Sunanda threw flowers in the sky, und they formed a canopy over the whole town.
He became König thirty fünf times under the name of Abbhasa (v.l. Ambaramsa). Thag.vs.84; ThagA.i.180f.
He is probably identical mit Puppachadanīya of the Apadāna. Ap.i.166.
