Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cakkana:An upāsaka of Ceylon.While he was a boy,his mother once fell grievously ill and the doctors ordered her hare’s flesh.Cakkana was sent by his brother into the field,where he caught a hare which,however,out of compassion he set free.His brother blamed him,but Cakkana cured his mother by a saccakiriyā,saying that,inasmuch as he had never deprived anything of life,by the power of that truth his mother should recover.(SA.ii.112; the story is slightly different in MA.i.165).Cakkana’s abstinence is one that was maintained "in spite of opportunity" (sampattivirati) and when he had not under-taken to observe any precept.DhsA.,p.103.
