Bhuñjatī

Wife of Vessavaṇa and a devout follower of the Buddha. Once, when Sakka went to see the Buddha at the Salalāgāra, he found the Buddha engaged in meditation, Bhuñjatī waiting on him and worshipping him with clasped hands. Sakka asked her to greet the Buddha in his name when he should awake from his meditation (D.ii.270 f).

Buddhaghosa adds (DA.iii.705) that Bhuñjatī had reached the second Fruit of the Path and found no pleasure in the luxuries of heaven.
