|+||'''Angiraja''' (Skt. ''Aṅgiraja''; Tib. ''Yenlag Jung''; [[Wyl.]] ''yan lag ‘byung'') — one of the [[Sixteen Arhats]].|
|+||As a householder Angiraja was immensely wealthy and gave away all his wealth seven times, but he realized his riches only caused [[jealousy]] and dispute. Distributing everything he had, he asked the [[Buddha]] for ordination and joined the [[Sangha]], later becoming an [[arhat]].|
|+||Angiraja now dwells on [[Mount Kailash]] with a retinue of 1,300 arhats. On this sacred mountain the Buddha explained the law of [[karma]], setting beings of all realms onto the path of [[liberation]]. |
|+||He holds a fly whisk and an incense bowl; smelling the incense or touching the fly whisk grants the sweet fragrance of shila (self [[discipline]]) which liberates beings from all manner of emotional pain.|
