A native of Kapilavastu, he studied under Āryadeva and awakened to the truth of non-substantiality. He is said to have converted many monks and laypersons to Mahayana Buddhism. He also wrote a commentary on Nāgārjuna’s Madhyamaka-kārikā, or Verses on the Middle Way. He is regarded as the fifteenth of Shakyamuni Buddha’s twenty-three, or the sixteenth of his twenty-four, successors and is said to have transferred the Buddha’s teachings to Samghanandi.
