Sikhī Buddha

The twentieth of the twenty-four Buddhas.

(Bu.xxi; BuA.201 ff; cf. D.ii.7; iii.195 f; J.i.41, 94; DhA.i.69; S.ii.9; Dvy.333).

Sikhī Buddha held the Pāṭimokkha ceremony only once in six years (DhA.iii.236; cf. Sp.i.191).

For a visit paid by him to the Brahma world see Abhibhū. His name also occurs in the Arunavatī Paritta (q.v.)

Sikhī Sutta.– The process by which Sikhī Buddha, like the other Buddhas, reached Enlightenment. S.iii.9.¹

¹ This is there called the Hāliddikāni Sutta, and was taught by Mahā-Kaccāna to the householder Hāliddikāni at the Kuraraghara precipice (papāta) in Avanti on the topic discussed in the Māgaṇḍiya Sutta. I can see no mention of Buddha Sikhī (ed.)
