Subha, Bhikkhuni was the daughter of a certain goldsmith of Rajagaha. She was very beautiful and was therefore called Subha. When grown up she saw the Master and believed in his doctrine. The Master saw the maturity of her moral faculties and taught her the Dhamma. She was afterwards established in the fruition of the first stage of sanctification. Thereafter she entered the order under Maha Pajapati Gotami. She strove hard for insight and in course of time she won Arahantship.
