1. Jeta - A prince. Owner of Jetavana, which he sold to Anathapindika for eighteen crores. He then spent all that money on the erection of a gateway at the entrance, which he decorated with much grandeur (See Jetavana). Jeta is generally referred to as Jeta Kumara. According to the northern records he was the son of Pasenadi by the Ksatriya princess Varsika (Rockhill: 48, n.1). He was killed by his half brother Vidudabha for refusing to help him in his slaughter of the Sakyans (Ibid., 121). Several explanations (MA.i.50; UdA.56; KhpA.111, etc.) are given of his name: he was so called either (1) because he conquered his enemies, or (2) because he was born at a time when the king had overcome his enemies, or (3) because such a name was considered auspicious for him (mangalakamyataya).
2. Jeta - A Pacceka Buddha. M.iii.70.
