Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Jatila Sutta:Once when Pasenadi was talking with the Buddha in the loggia outside the Migāramātupāsāda,there passed close by thirty-five ascetics of various denominations - Jatilas,Niganthas,etc.- and the king saluted them respectfully.Later,he asked the Buddha whether they were arahants or on the way to arahantship.The Buddha explained to him how hard it was for a layman,with all his encumbrances,to find an opportunity to learn the truth about arahants; much time and care and attention were necessary.The king agreed and mentioned how he gathered information through his spies.S.i.77f.
