Gūṭhakhādaka

1. Gūṭhakhādaka.– A hungry ghost (peta). A householder, in a village near Sāvatthi, built a vihāra for a monk who visited his house. Other monks arrived, and the incumbent, envious of them, spoke ill of them to the householder who abused them all. As a result, he was born as a peta in the cesspit of the same monastery and came under the notice of Mahā Moggallāna. Pv.iv.18; PvA.266 f; cp. ThagA.i.386 f.

2. Gūṭhakhādakā.– Same as the above, except that in this case the householder was a woman. Pv.iv.9; PvA.269.
