A monk whose Theragāthā verse speaks of his delight in meditating while the rain falls on his little hut. Thag.51
According to the Saṃyutta SN.i.120f. account, Godhika lived on the Kāḷasilā in Isigilipassa. There he made various vain attempts to win arahantship, achieving only temporary emancipation of mind, from which he then fell away. Six times this happened and then he decided to commit suicide by cutting his throat. Māra saw this and reported it to the Buddha, but when the Buddha arrived it was too late and Godhika lay “supine on his couch with his shoulders twisted around.” The Buddha, however, declared that Godhika had attained Nibbāna.
