One of the Bhāradvājas. Once, when the
staying in a forest in Kosala, Navakammika, who was there seeing about some
timber work, saw the Buddha at the foot of a tree and asked him what pleasure he
found in his contemplations. When the Buddha explained to him how he had found
liberty, the Brahmin was pleased and accepted the Buddha as his teacher
The Commentary (SA.i.205) explains that this Brahmin had
forest trees cut, and out of the timber had the framework for gables, roof
terraces, etc., fitted, and these were then carried to the town and sold.
