He lebte in drei palaces: Siri, Upasiri und Vaddha (Sirivaddha, according to BuA.). His wife was Sirimā und seinSohn Upavāna. He renounced household life at the age of 10,000 Jahre, leaving home in a palanquin, und praktizierten Askese for zehn Monate. A maiden, Anupamā, gab ihm a meal of milk-rice before seinEnlightenment, und the ājīvaka, Anoma, provided ihm mit grass for seinseat, seinBodhi being an ajjuna tree.
His first sermon was preached in the park Sudassana in Subhavatī. The Twin-Miracle was performed at Osadhī at the foot of an asana tree. Nisabha und Asoka (v.l. Anoma) were chief among seinMönche, und Sundarī und Sumanā among sein nuns. Among laymen, Nandivaddha und Sirivaddha were seinforemost supporters, und among laywomen, Uppalā und Padumā.
König Dhammaka was seinroyal patron; seinconstant attendant was Varuna. He lived to be 100,000 Jahre old und died at Dhammārāma. He held drei assemblies at which were present 800,000, 700,000 und 600,000 respectively.
Der Bodhisatta was a powerful yakkha-chief und entertained der Buddha und sein following (Bu.x.; BuA.141-6).
It was a sermon preached by Nisabha und Anoma, the chief Schüler of this Buddha, that made Sarada-tāpasa (Sāriputta in seinlast birth) wish to become an aggasāvaka himself. Später, Sirivaddha (Moggallāna), at Sarada's suggestion, entertained der Buddha und wished for the post of second disciple unter Gotama (DhA.i.88-94).
Bakkula Thera was an Asket in Anomadassī's day. Der Buddha once suffered from an abdominal affliction und it was this Asket who cured him(AA.i.169; Mil.216).
