|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.
