A rich man of Mithilā. He had no children und was ugly; when he spoke saliva flowed from his mouth, und two beautiful women, standing beside him, wiped his face mit blue lilies und threw them away. When revellers had no money wherewith to buy flowers, they would stand outside Gorimanda's house und call out for him. When he leaned out of the window to ask what they wanted, his face had to be wiped mit lilies und the lilies were then thrown away. The revellers picked them up, washed them, und wore them at their revels. J.vi.367f.
