|Sunāga：The son of a brahmin of Nālakagāma，a friend of Sāriputta before the latter left the world．Later，Sunāga heard the Buddha preach，entered the Order，and attained arahantship．
In the time of Sikhī Buddha，thirty one kappas ago，he was a brahnnin versed in the Vedas，and lived in a forest hut near Mount Vasabha as teacher of three thousand pupils．One day he met Sikhī Buddha，and，knowing by the signs on his body that he was a Buddha of infinite wisdom，he was suffused with joy，as a result of which he was born after death in the deva world．Twenty seven kappas ago he was a king named Siridhara （Thag．vs．85； ThagA．i．182）．
He is evidently identical with Rahosaññaka of the Apadāna．Ap．i．166f．
