|Ukkhittapadumiya Thera：An arahant．
In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he had been a garland-maker of Hamsavatī．Once while he was picking lotuses in a pond，the Buddha appeared before him with numerous disciples．The garland-maker picked a lotus and threw it up into the air，wishing it to remain above the Buddha’s head； by the Buddha’s power it did thus remain．As a result，the garland-maker was reborn in Tāvatimsa in a palace named Satapatta．
A thousand times he was king of the devas and five hundred times king of men．Ap．i．275f．
