  • Nalagārika Thera

An arahant. In the time of Nārada Buddha, he built for the Buddha a hut of reeds near the Hārita mountain and thatched it with grass.

Seventy four times he became king of the devas and seventy seven times king of men (Ap.i.178).

He is probably identical with Valliya Thera (ThagA.ii.247).
