Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
A wood in Ukkattha. Once, when the Buddha was there, he visited the Aviha gods (D.ii.50) and, again, from there he visited Baka Brahma, to whom he preached the Brahmanimantanika Sutta (M.i.326; but see S.i.142, where the Buddha is said to have been at Jetavana). It was under a sala tree in Subhagavana that the Mulapariyaya Sutta was preached (M.i.1; also the Jatakas, of the same name, J.ii.259).
The wood was so called because of its beauty. People often went there for pleasure, and, influenced by the romantic nature of the surroundings, would plan pleasant things, which would come to pass (MA.i.10).
Theravāda is a major branch of Buddhism having the the Pali canon (tipitaka) as their canonical literature, which includes the vinaya-pitaka (monastic rules), the sutta-pitaka (Buddhist sermons) and the abhidhamma-pitaka (philosophy and psychology).
