Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)
A monastery in Hatthibhogajanapada in the south of Ceylon. In front of its refectory stood a pangura tree. One day the devata of the tree heard a novice recite the Mahadhammasamadana Sutta and applauded the recital. On being questioned by the novice, he told him that he had heard the Buddha preach the sutta but had been unable to see him, there being so many deities present more important than himself. It is said that the devata became a sotapanna on the very day of this conversation. MA.i.530f.Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
