Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
A township of the Sakyans. The Buddha once stayed there and was visited by Pasenadi, king of Kosala, who felt remorse for the murder of his general Bandhula. The king went alone inside the Gandhakuti, laying aside the symbols of royalty which he left with his minister Digha Karayana. When the king came out, he found that all his followers had gone, leaving behind only one horse and a serving woman. On learning that Vidudabha had been made king, Pasenadi left for Rajagaha, to seek the help of Ajatasattu, and died outside the city gates. J.iv.151f; DhA.i.356. See also Medatalumpa.
