Alomā

v.l. Ālomā.– A poor woman of Bārāṇasī. She saw the Buddha going on his begging round, and having nothing else to offer, gave him, with very pious heart, some dried flesh, old and saltless.

She thought constantly of her gift, and after death was born in a mansion (vimāna) in Tāvatiṃsa, where Mahā-Moggallāna came across her and heard her story from her. Vv.39; VvA.184.
