Dhammasava Thera

An Arahant. He was a brahmin of Magadha who, having heard the Buddha teach at Dakkhiṇāgiri, entered the Order.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha he was a brahmin ascetic named Suvaccha, versed in the three Vedas. The Buddha appeared before him, and he paid him homage by scattering nāga-flowers in his path. Thirty-one world-cycles ago he was a king named Mahāraṭha (Thag.107; ThagA.i.214 f).

He is probably identical with Nāgapupphiya of the Apadāna. Ap.i.179.
