Pali Word Grammar from Pali Myanmar Dictionary
migasira: migasira(pu,na)
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Migasira:1.Migasira Thera. He belonged to a brahmin family of Kosala,and was so called because he was born under the constellation of Migasira.

He acquired brahmin culture and practiced the skull spell (chavasīsamanta),by which he could tap with his nail on the skull and declare the destiny of the dead person.Later,he became a Paribbājakā and visited the Buddha at Sāvatthi.The Buddha,having been told of his claims to knowledge,gave to him the skull of an arahant.Migasira tried his art,but had to confess himself beaten.The Buddha thereupon offered to teach him if he would join the Order.Migasira agreed and soon became an arahant.

In the time of Kassapa Buddha he was a brahmin,and,seeing the Buddha,offered him eight handfuls of kusa grass (? kusattha) (Thag.vss.181f.; ThagA.i.305ff.).

He is evidently identical with Kusatthakadāyaka Thera of the Apadāna.v.l.Migasīsa.Ap.ii.416.

2.Migasira.The name of a constellation and the month named after it.E.g.,DA.i.241.
