Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
Kuddālaka (कुद्दालक) refers to one of the six teachers mentioned in the Sunetrasūtra (cf the 2nd century Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra chapter XIV).—Accordingly:—The Sunetrasūtra which is in Aṅguttara lists six teachers (satthā), ferrymen, completetly renounced (vītarāga), having several hundreds of disciples to whom they taught the doctrine of participating in the world of Brahmā (viz., Brahmaloka). To criticize or insult them would be a grave demerit. These six teachers are Sunetra, Mugapakkha, Aranemi, Kuddālaka, Hatthipāla Jotipāla.
Note: Buddhaghosa does not comment on this passage, but these six teachers are probably earlier births of the Buddha.
