Gosiṅgasālavanadāya

1. Gosiṅgasālavanadāya.– A forest tract near Ñātika. Once, when Anuruddha, Nandiya, and Kimbila were living there, they were visited by the Buddha, who came from Giñjakāvasatha. The result of the visit was the teaching of the Cūḷagosiṅga Sutta (q.v.) (M.i.205 f). On another occasion, when the Buddha was staying there with many eminent monks, among whom were Sāriputta, Mahā-Moggallāna and others, their conversation led to the teaching of the Mahāgosiṅga Sutta (q.v.) (M.i.212 f).

2. Gosiṅgasālavanadāya.– A forest tract near Vesāli. When the Buddha was living in the Kūṭāgārasāla, in the Mahāvaṇa, he was visited by many people and there was great disturbance. In order to find quiet and solitude, certain monks, among whom were Cāla, Upacāla, Kakkaṭa, Kaḷimbha, Nikaṭa and Kaṭissaha, retired into this forest (A.v.133).
