One of the 84 Mahasiddhas, according to text by Abhayadatta.
He was a rich brahman who once prevented a yogi who was carrying a skull cup from entering his premises to beg for alms. The brahman considered the yogi an unclean person. The yogi answered: "Unclean are those whose mind, body, and speech are morally corrupt. Seek the immaculate purity of those whose sins have been purified by the teachings of the great gurus." Hearing this the brahman could not help coming to the cementery with offerings of wine and meat to recieve the yogi's teachings. After six years of meditation he attained supreme siddhi.
