Theravada (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Pali Kanon: Pali Proper Names
1. Uparevata - A samanera, son of Padumuttara Buddha. It was the sight of this novice which made Rahula, then born as the Naga king Sankha, wish to become a Buddhas son (SnA.i.340; MA.ii.722). According to the Buddhavamsa (xi.21), however, Padumuttaras son was called Uttara. Uparevata, though very young in years (tarunalalitadaraka), was possessed of great iddhi powers and the Naga king was greatly impressed by him (AA.i.142f. Here the naga king is called Pathayindhara).
2. Uparevata - Nephew of Sariputta. When Sariputta went to Nalaka on his last visit, in order to die there, Uparevata saw him outside the village, seated under a banyan tree. He was asked to announce Sariputtas arrival to the latters mother, and to make preparations for accommodating Sariputtas five hundred followers (DA.ii.551; SA.iii.175).
