  • Cittaka Thera

Son of a wealthy brahmin of Rājagaha. He heard the Buddha preach at Veluvana and, having entered the Order, practised meditation in a wooded spot, ultimately achieving arahantship.

In the time of Vipassī Buddha he offered him flowers in homage (Thag.22; ThagA.i.77).

He is probably identical with Tīnikinkinipupphiya Thera of the Apadāna. Ap.ii.433.
