Gandamba

The mango-tree, at the gate of Sāvatthi, under which the Buddha performed the Twin Miracle (Yamaka-pāṭihāriya) (q.v.) The king’s gardener, Ganda, while on his way to the palace to give the king a ripe mango-fruit from the palace gardens, saw the Buddha going on his alms-rounds and offered him the mango. The Buddha ate it immediately, and gave the seed to Ānanda to be planted by the gardener at the city-gate. A tree of one hundred cubits sprouted forth at once, covered with fruit and flowers. At the foot of this tree Vissakamma, by the order of Sakka, built a pavilion of the seven kinds of precious things. J.iv.264 f; J.i.88; DhA.iii.206 ff; Mil.349.
