3. Gopaka.– A deva. He had been a Sākyan maid of Kapilavatthu named Gopikā (Gopī), who led a virtuous life and, according to the Buddha’s teaching, had cultivated the thoughts of a man. After death she was born as a devaputta in Tāvatiṃsa. There, when he saw monks reborn as Gandhabbā, he rebuked them for having neglected their opportunities. A series of verses attributed to Gopaka are given in the Sakkapañha Sutta. D.ii.271‑5.
