勝意比丘 (Skt Agramati; Jpn Shoi-biku)
A monk said to have lived in the latter age after the death of the Buddha Lion Sound King. According to the Non-substantiality of All Phenomena Sutra and The Treatise on the Great Perfection of Wisdom, he slandered the monk Root of Joy, who upheld the correct teaching, in front of many other monks, saying that Root of Joy was instructing the people in false doctrines. As a result, the earth split open and he fell into hell alive.
