  • Cakkhulola-Brahmadatta

King of Benares. He was very fond of watching dancing and had three dancing halls where girls and women, of various ages, danced for his pleasure. One day he noticed a house-holder's wife who had come to watch the dance and longed to possess her. On realising the wickedness of his desire, he renounced the kingdom and became a Pacceka Buddha.

His Udānagāthā is included in the Khaggavisāna Sutta. Sn.vs.63; SnA.i.115f.; Ap.i., p. II (vs.37); ApA.i.160f.
