Dīghabhāṇakā

Reciters of the Dīghanikāya.

They separated the Cariyāpitaka, Apadāna, and Buddhavaṃsa from the Khuddakanikāya and ascribed the remaining twelve divisions of that Nikāya to the Abhidhamma Piṭaka (DA.i.15).

They also held that the four omens that the Bodhisatta saw, prior to his Renunciation, were seen on one and the same day (J.i.59).

It is said that once, when the Dīghabhāṇakas recited the Brahmajāla Sutta at the Ambalaṭṭhikā, to the east of the Lohapāsāda, the earth shook. DA.i.131; for views expressed by them see Sp.ii.413; DhSA.159, etc.
