Guttā

1. Guttā Therī.– She belonged to a brahmin family of Sāvatthi; when she reached adolescence household life became repugnant to her owing to her dependence (upanissaya), and, with her parents’ consent, she entered the Order under Mahāpajāpatī Gotamī. For a long time she could not concentrate her mind, but, encouraged by the Buddha, she attained Arahantship. Thig.vv.163‑8; ThigA.157 f.

2. Guttā.– The third of the seven daughters of Kiki, king of Bārāṇasī. She was a previous birth of Paṭācārā. J.vi.481; but see Ap.ii.558, v.15, where Paṭācārā is identified with Bhikkhuṇī.
