1. Siddhattha - The sixteenth of the twenty four Buddhas. He was born in the Viriya pleasance in the city of Vebhara, his father being the khattiya Udena and his mother Suphassa. At the time of his birth all enterprises succeeded, hence his name. He lived as a householder for ten thousand years in three palaces - Koka, Suppala and Kokanuda, (Paduma) - his wife being Sumana (Somanassa) and his son Anupama. He left home in a golden palanquin, practised austerities for ten months, had milk rice given to him by a brahmin maiden, Sunetta of Asadisa, and grass for his seat by a Yavapala, Varuna. His bodhi was a kanikara, and his first sermon was preached at Gaya. The Bodhisatta was an ascetic named Mangala, of Surasena. Samphala and Sumitta were his chief disciples among monks, and Sivala and Sarama among nuns, while Revata was his attendant. Chief among his laypatrons were Suppiya and Samudda and Ramma and Suramma. His body was sixty cubits high. He lived for one hundred thousand years, and died in the Anomarama in the city of Anoma. His thupa was four leagues in height. Bu.xvii.; BuA.185ff.; J.i.49.

2. Siddhattha - The personal name of Gotama Buddha. J.i.56, 58, etc.; iv. 50, 328; vi. 479; DhA.iii.195; Dpv.iii.197; xix.18; Mhv.ii. 24, 25. In the Mtu. he is called Sarvarthasiddha.

4. Siddhattha - A son of King Kassapa IV. He was appointed governor of the Malaya district and came to be called Malayaraja. He died young, however, and Kassapa built a hall for the monks in his name and instituted an offering of alms. Cv.lii.68f.
