Utpalavarnā ［蓮華色比丘尼］ (; Pali Uppalavannā; Rengeshiki-bikuni): A nun of Shakyamuni Buddha’s Order. The Fourfold Rules of Discipline tells how she came to renounce the secular world. Just at the time she gave birth to a daughter, she discovered that her husband was having an illicit relationship with her mother and she ran away from home, leaving her baby. Later she became the wife of a rich man in Vārānasī. When her new husband brought home a second wife, however, Utpalavarnā realized that the woman was her daughter. Sorrowing over her destiny, she renounced secular life and became a disciple of the Buddha. Thereafter she engaged in Buddhist practice under the guidance of Mahāprajāpatī and attained the state of arhat. According to The Treatise on the Great Perfection of Wisdom, when Devadatta rolled a huge rock down on the Buddha in an attempt to kill him, she reproached Devadatta for his evil act, whereupon Devadatta beat her to death.
