Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cūlaka Thera:A brahmin of Rājagaha who,having seen the Buddha tame the elephant Dhanapāla,entered the Order and dwelt in the Indasāla cave.One day,as he sat looking down over the Magadhakhetta,a great storm arose and the rain came down in torrents.The peacocks danced and sang and the coolness helped Cūlaka to concentrate his mind and attain arahantship.

In the time of Sikhī Buddha he was a householder and gave to the Buddha a chattapāni-fruit.Thag.211f.; ThagA.i.333f.
