Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
A devaputta. He visited the Buddha at Savatthi and uttered certain verses in the hearing of the monks, telling of the necessity of following the recluses calling with energy and sincerity. After his departure the Buddha asked the monks to learn the verses for their own good (S.i.49).
The Commentary (SA.i.85) says that he was once a dissentient teacher, like Nanda, Vaccha, Kisa, Sankicca, etc., and taught some of the sixty two views enumerated in the Brahmajala Sutta. By the power of good deeds and by believing in Kamma, he was reborn in the heavens. Discerning from there that at length a really saving Dhamma and Order had been founded, he came to incite the Buddhas disciples.
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).
