      Angulimala...he was a student...got betrayed by his classmate and then his
      teacher...went a bit mad and was stopped by the Buddha. He became a monk and
      then an Arahata. Angulimala means, necklace of fingers.

              Thanks for you info. Actually I was looking for Gombrich's "How Buddhism Began" which contains
              the ground-breaking article on Angulimala. Anyway I find your info useful in other ways.

                    Hi Pali Friends,

                    I hardly write but i saw this in one of my mail and
                    thought i shud share with all on Angulimala.

                    With Metta
                    Sharon Mallika Khoo



                    ANGULIMALA AND THE BUDDHA'S CHIEF BEFEFACTORS



                    ANGULIMALA



                    It was in the 20th year that the Buddha converted the
                    notorious murderer Angulimala. Ahimsaka (Innocent)
                    was his original name. He belonged to a distinguished
                    family, and was the most illustrious and favourite
                    pupil of his renowned teacher.



                    Unfortunately his associates grew jealous of him,
                    concocted a false story, and succeeded in poisoning
                    the teacher against him. The enraged teacher, without
                    any investigation, contrived to put an end to his life
                    by ordering him to fetch a thousand fingers as a
                    present. In obedience to the teacher, though with
                    great reluctance, he repaired to the forest and
                    started killing people to collect fingers for the
                    necessary offering. Later he wore a garland of these
                    fingers to ascertain the number, hence the name
                    Angulimala.



                    When he had collected 999 fingers, and was ready to
                    complete the number, the Buddha appeared on the scene.
                    Angulimala made a vain attempt to kill the Buddha, but
                    was eventually converted to the noble Dhamma and was
                    admitted into the Order. One day as he went on his
                    alms-round he saw a woman in travail. Moved by
                    compassion he reported this pathetic case to the
                    Buddha who then taught the Angulimala Paritta which
                    runs as follows: -



                    “Sister, since I was born in the Ariyan clan, I know
                    not that I consciously destroyed the life of any
                    living being. By this truth may you be whole, and may
                    your child be whole!”



                    He studied this Paritta, and going to the presence of
                    the suffering sister sat on a seat separated from her
                    by a screen, and made this Act of Truth. Instantly she
                    was delivered of the child with great ease. The
                    efficacy of this Paritta persists to this day.



                    In due course Venerable Angulimala attained
                    Arahantship.



                    The remaining twenty-five years were spent in Savatthi
                    at the Jetavana Monastery, built by Anathapindika, the
                    millionaire, and at Pubbarama, built by Visakha, the
                    chief benefactress of the Buddha.
