Nigguṇḍipupphiya Thera

1. Nigguṇḍipupphiya Thera.– An Arahant. Ninety-one world-cycles ago he was the monastery attendant (ārāmika) of Vipassī Buddha, and once gave a nigguṇḍi flower to the Buddha. Thirty-five world-cycles ago he was king, under the name of Mahāpatāpa (Ap.i.205). He is probably identical with Vīra Thera. ThagA.i.50 f.

2. Nigguṇḍipupphiya Thera.– An Arahant. In the past he had been an inhabitant of the deva world and listened to the teaching of a disciple of Padumuttara Buddha, called Sumana. He then offered a nigguṇḍi flower on the seat of the Buddha. In this life he entered the Order at the age of seven, and after listening to a discourse by Ānanda became an Arahant. He was sixteen times king, under the names of Abbuda and Nirabudda. Ap.i.262 f.
