  • Udakadāyikā Therī

An arahant. In a previous birth she was a water-carrier and maintained her children on her wages. Having nothing else to give, she regularly provided water in a bath for others. As a result, she was born in heaven and was fifty times queen of the deva-king and twenty times queen of kings on earth. She could produce rain at will, and her body knew neither heat nor dirt. Ap.ii.521-2.
