Kabupelanda

 v.l. Kammupelanda, Kampupelanda, Kapupelanda.– A village and monastery in Sri Lanka. In the monastery once lived a novice (sāmaṇera), possessed of great psychic powers, who, not heeding the advice of his teacher, fell in love with a weaver’s daughter and, as a result, lost all his powers. Later, the woman lost her sight through a blow from him, and he was reduced to abject poverty. The novice’s teacher had warned him of just this, but the warning was of no avail (VibhA.294 f; but see MA.ii.699 f., where the names are spelt differently).
