In Buddhism

Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)

Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names

King of Videha; he ruled at Mithila. His chief queen bore him a daughter Ruja, all his other 16,000 wives being barren.

His ministers were Vijaya, Sunama and Alata.

He questions an ascetic, Guna, as to the various moral duties, and following his advice, devotes himself solely to pleasure. Ruja, however, is virtuous and tries to deliver him from his heretical beliefs, but it is not till the Bodhisatta - who had been born as the Maha Brahma Narada -comes down to earth in the guise of an ascetic, and frightens the king with descriptions of the various hells, that Angati is convinced of the error of his ways.

He was a former incarnation of Uruvela Kassapa. J.vi.220-55.
