Devagabbhā

Daughter of Mahākaṃsa, king of Asitañjana. It was predicted that her son would destroy the lineage of Kaṃsa; she was therefore imprisoned in a room built on a single pillar. With the help of her serving woman, Nandagopā, she entered into an intrigue with Upasāgara, whom she afterwards married.

They had ten sons — the notorious Andhakaveṇhudāsaputtā — and one daughter, Añjanadevi (J.iv.79 ff; PvA.99 ff).
