Bhisadāyaka Thera

1. Bhisadāyaka Thera.– An Arahant. In the past, while gathering lotus stalks for food, he saw Padumuttara Buddha travelling through the air and asked him to accept some stalks. The Buddha did so. Soon after, the man was struck by lightning and reborn in Tusita (Ap.ii.420 f). He is probably identical with Bhaddaji Thera. ThagA.i.286.

2. Bhisadāyaka Thera.– An Arahant. Thirty-one world-cycles ago he was an elephant, and seeing Vessabhū Buddha in the forest, he gave him lotus stalks to eat. Thirteen world-cycles ago he was born sixteen times as king under the name of Samodhāna. Ap.i.114.
