Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cūlasāropama Sutta:Pingala-Koccha visits the Buddha at Jetavana and questions him on famous teachers such as Pūrana Kassapa,Makkhali Gosāla and others.The Buddha tells him that the reward of the higher life is not to be found in presents,esteem,or good repute,nor in a life of virtue,rapt concentration,or mystic insight.Immortal deliverance only is the prize and the goal of the higher life.If a man needs the very best of wood,no other part of the tree will suffice.

Pingala-Koccha accepts the Buddha as his teacher.M.i.198ff
