Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names

Jambugamika or Jambugamiya: He was born at Campa, his father bearing the same name as himself. (He was probably chief of Jambugama). He joined the Order and dwelt in the Anjanavana in Saketa. One day, in order to test him, his father sent him a verse, and he, realising his imperfections, became an arahant (Thag.28; ThagA.i.86f).

In the time of Vessabhu Buddha he threw three kimsuka flowers into the air as offering to the Buddha.

He is probably identical with Kimsukapupphiya of the Apadana. Ap.ii.435; but see s.v. Somamitta.
