He was born in Hamsavatī. He lived for ten thousand years in three palaces: Naravāhana, Yassa (or Yasavatī) and Vasavatti. His wife was Vasudattā, by whom he had a son, Uttara. His body was fifty eight cubits high.
His life parallels that of Gautama Buddha except that he was assisted by different people and his bodhi tree was a salala. Many of Gautama Buddha's disciples were said to have made their aspiration for eminent positions in the time of Padumuttara Buddha.
In the Apadāna some gods wish to built a stūpa of their own over the relics of Padumuttara. As a Tathāgata his relics were not separated. Dīpankara attained Nirvāṇa in Nandārāma, where a stūpa was built which was thirty six yojanas high.
