Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Nalakāra:The Bodhisatta,born as a deva inTāvatimsa.In his previous life he had been a farmer in Benares.One day,while going to his fields,he saw a Pacceka Buddha.Thereupon he turned back,took the Pacceka Buddha home,fed him,and,with his son,built for him a hut with reed walls,on the banks of the Ganges,looked after him in the rains and gave him robes to wear.

When Sumedha,queen of Suruci,yearned for a son,Nalakāra agreed to be born as her son,at Sakka’s request; he then came to be called Mahāpanāda (J.iv.318 23).Regarding his son,see Sankha (DA.iii.806f).
