Krita ［訖利多王］ (n.d.) (; Kirita-ō): A king of Kashmir in ancient India who suppressed Buddhism. He banished Buddhist monks and destroyed their temples, annihilating Buddhism in that area. For this, Himatala, king of Tukhāra and a patron of Buddhism, killed him. This story appears in The Record of the Western Regions, Hsüan-tsang’s account of his travels through Central Asia and India in the seventh century. This work describes Krita as a person who appeared six hundred years after Shakyamuni’s death.
