A city in the Seriva country, on the bank of the river Telavāha. It was whilst doing business as a hawker here that the Bodhisatta, born as Seriva, crossed the wishes of another hawker, who in the present age was Devadatta. This was the beginning of Devadatta’s enmity towards the Buddha. J.i.111, 113.
