Belatthānika:He belonged to a brahmin family of Sāvathi,and,after hearing the Buddha preach,he entered the Order.While meditating in a forest tract in Kosala,he grew slothful and rough in speech.One day the Buddha,seeing his maturing insight,appeared before him in a ray of glory and admonished him with averse.Belatthānika was filled with agitation and soon after became an arahant.

In the time of Vipassī Buddha he was a brahmin teacher,and,while wandering about with his pupils,he saw the Buddha and offered him seven flowers.Twenty nine kappas ago he became king under the name of Vipulābhāsa (Thag.vs.101; ThagA.i.205f).
