Sambhuta in Theravada glossary... « previous · [S] · next »

1. Sambhuta. A candala, brother of Citta. He was the Bodhisattas sisters son. See the Citta Sambhuta Jataka. Sambhuta is identified with Ananda. J.iv.401.

2. Sambhuta Thera. A brahmin of Rajagaha who, with his friends, Bhumija, Jeyyasena and Abiradhana, entered the Order. Because he stayed continuously in the Sitavana, meditating on the nature of the body, he came to be called Sitavaniya. In due course he won arahantship, and the verses, declaring his anna, are included in the Theragatha (Thag.vs.6).

It is said (ThagA.i.46) that when Sambhuta was meditating, Vessavana passing that way, saw him and worshipped him, and left two Yakkhas to keep guard and to tell Sambhuta of his visit. When the Thera had finished his meditations, the Yakkhas gave him Vessavanas message offering him protection. But he refused their protection saying that the mindfulness taught by the Buddha was sufficient guard. On his return journey, Vessavana again visited him, and, realizing from the appearance of the Elder that he had achieved his goal, went to the Buddha at Savatthi and announced to him Sambhutas attainment.

Sambhuta had been a householder in the time of Atthadassi Buddha, and conveyed the Buddha and a large company across a river. He is probably identical with Taraniya Thera of the Apadana. Ap.i.204f.; see also VibhA.306 and SA.iii.201, where Sambhuta is given as an example of one who developed lokuttaradhamma by developing the heart (cittam dhuram katva).

3. Sambhuta Thera. He belonged to a family of clansmen and joined the Order under Ananda, after the Buddhas death, attaining arahantship in due course.

He lived in the bliss of emancipation, till one century after the Buddhas death, and, when the Vajjiputtaka heresy arose, his help was sought by Yasa Kakandakaputta.

At that time he lived on Ahogangapabbata and was called Sanavasi because he wore a hempen robe.

At the assembly of the arahants held on Ahogangapabbata, Sambhuta suggested that they should seek the support of Soreyya Revata. Together they went to Sabbakami, and Sambhuta questioned him regarding the Ten Points.

Sambhuta was one of the monks appointed to the committee to discuss the points raised, and when they were declared heretical, he joined in the holding of the Second Council. Vin.ii.298 f., 303ff.; ThagA.i.390 f.; Mhv.iv.18, 57; Dpv.iv.49; v.22; Sp.i.34f.

A series of verses uttered by Sambhuta, moved by righteous emotion at the proposed perversion of the Dhamma and Vinaya by the Vajjiputtakas, is included in the Theragatha (Thag.vss.291 4).

In the past, during a period when there were no Buddhas in the world, Sambhuta was a kinnara on the banks of the Candabhaga, and seeing a Pacceka Buddha, he worshipped him and offered him ajjuna flowers.
