Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)
Mention is made in one or two places in the books of Brahmas who are described as Pacceka Brahma - e.g., Subrahma, Suddhavasa and Tudu. I have not come across any explanation of this term. It may designate a Brahma who does not live in any recognized Brahma world, but in a world of his own.Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
