The Dipankara Buddha is said to predate the historical Buddha in a world cycle long past and to have foretold his coming. Dipankara Buddha is sometimes equated with Adibuddha, the "original Buddha." Since about the 17th century his cult has been popular with Nepalese Buddhist who considers him a protector of merchants and associate him with alms-giving. One of Dipankara's local names, the "Samyak God", refers to an alms-giving festival where images of Dipankara Buddha are displayed.
