XXVI:20 The Buddha praises Khema*

One night, Sakka, king of the devas came with his followers to pay homage to the Buddha. At the same time, Bhikkhuni Khema by her supernormal power, also came through the sky to pay homage to the Buddha. When she saw Sakka and his company were there, she just paid her respects and left. Sakka asked who that bhikkhuni was and the Buddha replied, 'She is one of my eminent female disciples. She is matchless amongst the bhikkhunis in wisdom.'
