A brigand, who set up his stronghold
between Anurādhapura and Cetiyagiri. He once came with his followers to plunder
Cetiyagiri monastery, but Dīghabhānaka-Abhaya Thera (q.v. ), hearing of his
intentions, gave orders that the robbers should be given a meal of the monastery
food. This so pleased Corābhaya that from that time he undertook to provide safe
passage for all pilgrims to Cetiyagiri (Sp.ii.474).
Corābhaya is generally classed with
Coranāga and, both are said to have been born after death in Lokantarikaniraya
with bodies three gāvutas in height. AA.ii.532; MA.ii.920; DA.ii.433.
