Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Dvārapālaka Vimāna:The story of a man who was engaged by a pious man of Rājagaha to guard his gate.



The gate had to be kept shut for fear of thieves and,as a result,monks had often to go away without receiving any alms.



A man was therefore engaged to see that the monks’ needs were satisfied.

The gate-keeper was born after death in Tāvatimsa.Vv.v.5; VvA.246f.
