Anomadassī Buddha

The seventh Buddha.

The Bodhisatta was a powerful yakkha-chief and entertained the Buddha and his following (Bu.x; BuA.141‑6).

It was a discourse taught by Nisabha and Anoma, the chief disciples of this Buddha, that made Sarada-tāpasa (Sāriputta in his last birth) wish to become a leading disciple (aggasāvaka) himself. Later, Sirivaḍḍha (Moggallāna), at Sarada’s suggestion, entertained the Buddha and wished for the post of second disciple under Gotama (DhA.i.88‑94).

Bakkula Thera was an ascetic in Anomadassī’s day. The Buddha once suffered from an abdominal affliction and it was this ascetic who cured him (AA.i.169; Mil.216).

It is said that at Anomadassī’s birth seven kinds of jewels rained down from the sky and that this was the reason for his name. From the time of his conception the aura of his body spread round him to a distance of eighty hands. BuA.141.
