Shin Upagutta

Shin Upagutta is an arahant venerated by Buddhists in Myanmar. He is believed to protect worshipers from danger, including storms, he is venerated in Northern Thailand and Laos, where he is known as Upakhut. He is depicted sitting cross-legged, dressed in monk's robes and with a hand tilted into an alms bowl called a thabeik, is associated with nāga, water serpents, he is believed to be either Moggaliputta-Tissa, a Buddhist monk who presided the Third Buddhist council, Upagupta, a Mahayana arhat, or a creation of Mahayana Buddhism, because he is not described in the Pali Canon and only mentioned in the Burmese historical chronicle Maha Yazawin. He was a monk named Eindagotta during Kassapa Buddha's time, he told some fellow monks to live a human life again. The Buddha told him. In Gautama Buddha's time, he was a non-believer called Sula Thakuladayi, he was taught by the Buddha about the concept of saṃsāra. However, he could not become a monk because of the prophecy of Kassapa Buddha. In 265 or 182 BCE, Upagutta was born to his father Prince Dawtha Kumara.

He was told. Upagutta had a rough personality. A sage named. Years Upagutta and his mother went back to her father, king of Yazaka; the king wanted Upagutta to become his heir but his mother believed in the prophesy about her son becoming an arhat. Meanwhile, a deva went across the ocean. Upagutta began to consider the dhamma taught by Bayathe, he became an arhat and the angel dropped him. As he was falling down, a bronze palace appeared in the ocean and he started to live there; some Burmese believe that Shin Upagutta is still living, in a floating brass palace in the southern ocean, that he can be invoked through a special Pali incantation, that his mere invisible presence will prevent storms and floods. Shin Upagutta is venerated by people in the Irrawaddy Delta. A major festival dedicated to Shin Upagutta is in Shwegyin, near Bago, during the Burmese month of Thadingyut. Another, called the Ye Hmyaw Pwe, is held in Yangon's Chinatown in October and involves a Chinese-style procession and ceremonial dispersal of ashes into the Yangon River.
