Seeing him going in that direction various people working in their fields called out to him to warn him that in that forest dwelt the dreaded Angulimala. Little is known for certain about Angulimala but the usual account of his life has him the son of a well-to-do family and at one time a brilliant student at the University of Taxila, then the Oxbridge of India. Unbelievably, instead of giving up and quietly going home without graduating, the young man set out to collect the fingers and pay the fee. Presumably, he quickly discovered that people were reluctant to willingly give up their little fingers and so he was forced to resort to violence and killing in order to obtain them. Then he found he had nowhere to store these fingers. He tried hanging them on a tree but the birds stole them so his solution was to string them around his neck.

The Awakened One, the compassionate great seer, the teacher of the world, along with its devas, said to him then: "Come, bhikkhu. Then the Blessed One set out wandering toward Savatthi with Ven. Angulimala as his attendant monk. The king must stamp him out! Driving as far as the ground was passable for chariots, he got down from his chariot and went on foot to the Blessed One. On arrival, having bowed down, he sat to one side. As he was sitting there, the Blessed One said to him, "What is it, great king?
I am going to stamp him out. Angulimala was sitting not far from the Blessed One. He poses no danger to you. He went over to Ven. Angulimala and said, "Are you really Angulimala, lord?
