Kisasankicca:A naked ascetic (acelaka),contemporary with the Buddha and evidently a well-known head of a school; mentioned in company with Nanda Vaccha and Makkhali Gosāla (E.g.,M.i.238).

Kisasankicca is spoken of as one of the three shining lights of the Ajivakas (M.i.524) and is classified among the paramasukkhābhijātas in the chalabhjāti of the Ajīvakas (q.v.) (A.iii.384; DA.i.162).

Buddhaghosa says (MA.i.463) that Kisa was his personal name and Sankicca that of his gotta.
