Vimalabala (विमलबल) is the name of a trader’s son, mentioned in the ‘Removing the Regret of Ajātaśatru Sūtra’.—[Question:]—How many Buddhas did Master Śākyamuni worship when he was a Bodisattva in order to attain Buddha-hood? [Reply:]—There are two parts: (1) the general awakening mind and (2) establishing the two collections. [...] The ‘Removing the Regret of Ajātaśatru Sūtra’ states: “When I was the son of the trader called Vimalabala, and Mañjūśrī was the monk preceptor Jñānarāja, I first generated the awakening mind”.
