King of Mithilā. His legend is told in the Makhadeva Sutta. MN.ii.74ff. He was a righteous king who observed the uposatha, together with his people. When a grey hair appeared on his head he went forth to develop the divine abidings, handing over his kingdon to his son and enjoining him to continue his good practice. For 48,000 generations this practice continued, the last being King Nimi. But his son Kaḷārajanaka did not continue the good tradition.
