He attained Arahantship on hearing a very brief teaching from the Buddha, while he was on his almsround. He was singled out by the Buddha as the one who gained Arahantship faster than anyone else. Some meditators thinks this means that they can also gain “instant enlightnement” by practising this method. If only! With inferior perfections, we will have to work hard to develop bare awareness, until it is strong enough to lead to deep insights.org/guidelines

--Ud 1.10Now while he was in seclusion, this reflection arose in the mind of Bahiya of the Bark-cloth: "Am I one of those in the world who are arahats or who have entered the path to arahatship?"
Then a devata who was a former blood-relation of Bahiya of the Bark-cloth understood that reflection in his mind. Being compassionate and wishing to benefit him, he approached Bahiya and said: "You, Bahiya, are neither an arahant nor have you entered the path to arahatship. You do not follow that practice whereby you could be an arahant or enter the path to arahatship."
"Then, in the world including the devas, who are arahats or have entered the path to arahatship?"
"There is, Bahiya, in a far country a town called Savatthi. There the Lord now lives who is the Arahant, the Fully Enlightened One. That Lord, Bahiya, is indeed an arahant and he teaches Dhamma for the realization of arahatship."
Then Bahiya of the Bark-cloth, profoundly stirred by the words of that devata, then and there departed from Supparaka.
