The earliest memory of a dream I have perplexes me. A serpent that was greater than its body arose from the depths of a well while I was locked inside of a room alone and wrapped itself around me about to swallow me whole. Could it be: mucalinda?
A tree near the Ajapālanigrodha in Uruvelā. The Buddha spent there the third week after the Enlightenment. There was a great shower of rain, and the Nāga king, Mucalinda, of the tree, sheltered the Buddha by winding his coils seven times round the Buddha’s body and holding his hood over the Buddha’s head (Vin.i.3; J.i.80; BuA.8, 241; Ud.ii.1; Mtn.iii.300, 302; DhSA.35). The Udāna Commentary (100f.; see also MA.i.385) adds that the space provided by the Nāga’s coils was as large as the floor space of the Lohapāsāda and that the Nāga king lived in a pond near the tree.
