Buddhasaññaka

1. Buddhasaññaka Thera.– An Arahant. In the time of Vipassī Buddha he was an earth bound deva, and when, at the death of the Buddha, the earth trembled, he realised the Buddha’s might and honoured him in his heart. Fourteen world-cycles ago he was a king named Samita (Ap.i.151 f). He is probably identical with Meghiya Thera. ThagA.i.149 f.

2. Buddhasaññaka Thera.– Ninety-four world-cycles ago he saw Siddhattha Buddha and his heart was gladdened. Ap.i.252.

3. Buddhasaññaka.– A hermit in the time of Siddhattha Buddha. Having heard from his pupils of the birth of the Buddha, he set forth from his hermitage to visit him. However, he fell ill while yet one hundred and fifty leagues away, and he died full of faith in the Buddha (Ap.ii.420). He is probably identical with Vītasoka Thera. ThagA.i.295 f.
