On learning that Punna proposes to live in Sunaparanta, the Buddha warns him that the people there are fierce and violent. Punna says that even if they kill him, he will not bear them illwill, but would rejoice to be of use to them. He leaves for Sunaparanta with the Buddha’s approval, and there gather around him five hundred disciples of either gender who have achieved arahantship. After Punna’s death, the monks question the Buddha about him and the Buddha reveals that he had attained Nirvana.
