His hair however remains on the ground detached from his body. Dipamkara warns his disciples not to step on the hair. Hundreds of thousands of persons then came and made offerings of flowers and perfumes to the hair. There is a story preserved in the Diryavadana in which Sumati's hair is replaced by better hair; the original hair being gathered by King Dipa; who gives it to king Vasava who counts 80,000 strands and gives one to each of his ministers; who create caitya to enshrine them in their districts.
