Cūḷa-Gavaccha Thera

A brahmin of Kosambī. Having heard the Buddha teach, he entered the Order. At that time the Kosambī monks had become contentious, but Gavaccha remained steadfast and attained to Arahantship.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a labourer and, finding the monk Sujāta looking for pieces of cloth for a robe, gave him his garment.

As a result, he was king of the devas thirty-three times and king of men seven times (Thag.11; ThagA.i.55 f). He is, perhaps, identical with Upaddhadussadāyaka of the Apadāna. Ap.ii.435 f; but the same verses are, in ThagA. (i.266) also attributed to Heraññakāni.
