In Buddhism

Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)

Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names

A paribbajaka who, with his friend Mandissa, visited the Buddha at the Ghositarama (D.i.159). The Buddha preached to them the Jaliya Sutta (q.v.). According to the Patika Sutta, when Jaliya heard that Patika could not come to hold a discussion with the Buddha at Vesali, he went to the Tindukkhana paribbajakarama and tried to get Patikaputta to come. But the latter was unable to come, being fixed in his seat. Jaliya thereupon spoke insultingly to him, calling him boaster, etc. (D.iii.22ff).

Jaliya is described as darupattakantevasi, because, says the Commentary (DA.i.319), his teacher used to beg for alms with a wooden bowl.
