Gagga

1. Gagga.– A monk. He became insane, and in this condition did many things unworthy of a monk. When his colleagues blamed him, the Buddha interceded on his behalf and suggested that he be given absolution for his offences, in view of his insanity. The monks acted according to the Buddha’s advice. Vin.i.123; ii.80 f.

2. Gagga.– A brahmin, father of Aṅgulimāla (M.ii.102). Gagga, whose wife was Mantāṇī, was chaplain to the king of Kosala (MA.ii.743). Gagga may have been a clan-name. Thus when, after his ordination, Aṅgulimāla is introduced to Pasenadi, the latter addresses him as Gagga Mantāṇiputta. M.ii.102.

3. Gagga.– A brahmin, father of the Bodhisatta in the Gagga Jātaka (q.v.)
