  • Upasamā Therī

She was born in a Sākyan family in Kapilavatthu and became a lady of the Bodhisatta's court. Later, in the company of Pajāpatī Gotamī, she renounced the world and entered the Order. One day, while she was meditating, the Buddha sent forth a ray of glory and admonished her. She, thereupon, developed insight and became an arahant. Thig.v.10; ThigA.12f.
