An arahant.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he had been a garland maker of Hamsavati. Once while he was picking lotuses in a pond, the Buddha appeared before him with numerous disciples. The garland maker picked a lotus and threw it up into the air, wishing it to remain above the Buddhas head; by the Buddhas power it did thus remain. As a result, the garland maker was reborn in Tavatimsa in a palace named Satapatta.

A thousand times he was king of the devas and five hundred times king of men. Ap.i.275f.
