Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Santakāya Thera:He was never guilty of any improper movement of hand or foot,but always carried himself with composure and dignity.This was because his mother was a lioness.For a lioness,when she has eaten prey,goes into her cave where she lies,for seven days,on a bed of red arsenic and yellow orpiment.When she rises on the seventh day,if she finds the bed disturbed by any movement on her part,she again lies down for seven days,saying:”This does not become your birth or lineage.” When the monks praised Santakāya to the Buddha,he held up the Elder as an example to be followed.Dhp.iv.113f.
