  • Naggaji

A king of Kasmira Gandhāra, his capital being Takkasilā. One day, while sitting on the terrace of his palace, he saw a woman grinding perfume, wearing a jewelled bracelet on each hand. After a while, she put both bracelets on one hand and they started jingling. This set the king thinking on the virtues of solitude, and he became a Pacceka Buddha. He joined Karandu, Dummukha and Nimi, who also became Pacceka Buddhas. J. iii.377,381.
