Bhikkhādāyikā

1. Bhikkhādāyikā.– A woman of Uttaramadhurā. The Buddha visited that city for her special benefit. Seeing him as she was returning from her bath, she invited him to her house and gave him a meal. She died soon after and was reborn in Tāvatiṃsa, where Mahā-Moggallāna saw her and learnt her story. Vv.ii.10; VvA.118 f.

2. Bhikkhādāyikā.– A similar story of a woman of Rājagaha who gave alms to an Arahant monk and was reborn in Tāvatiṃsa. Vv.ii.11; VvA.119 f.
