“Actually, there is an account in the Tipitaka where a seven-year-old attained Arahanthood”,
Lal (April 24, 2020 at 3:48 pm).
Dhammapada Verse 110
Just came across this verse here:
“With the bhikkhus, there was also a young samanera by the name of SAMKICCA, who was sent along with them by Thera Sariputta. This samanera was only seven years old, but had already attained arahatship”
(Now it looks it was not just the odd one, though still very rare by all accounts !! )
