Dowson's Classical Dictionary
of Hindu Mythology] A Brahman
mentioned in the Mahabharata as having by asceticism acquired a supernatural
power of locomotion, of which he was so proud that he deemed himself
perfect in virtue and superior to all men. A voice from the sky told
him that he was inferior to Tuladhara, a Vaisya and a trader. He went
to this Tuladhara and learnt wisdom from him.
