The Samyutta Nikaya mentions an interview between an Elder of this name and the Sakyan Mahanama. Mahanama asks the Elder if the learners way of life is identical with that of the Tathagata. Vangisa answers that it is not so; learners only abandon the five hindrances; arahants have completely destroyed them from the root.

The interview took place in the Nigrodharama at Kapilavatthu.

The name Lomasavangisa is, probably, a wrong or variant reading for Lomasakangiya (q.v.). S.v.327f.
