Romakūpa (रोमकूप) refers to the “pores of the skin” from which the Buddha emitted numerous rays when he smiled for a second time, according to the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XIV).—Accordingly, “then the Bhagavat smiled once more with all the pores of his skin and emitted rays that lit up the trisāhasramahāsāhasralokadhātu and extended to universes of the ten directions as numerous as the sands of the Ganges. All the beings who were touched by their brilliance were destined to supreme complete enlightenment”.
