Kaccāna

See Mahā-Kaccāna, Pakudha-Kaccāna, Pubba-Kaccāna, Sambula-Kaccāna, Sabhiya-Kaccāna, etc. See also Kaccāyana. Kaccāna or Kaccāyana is the name of a family, the Kaccānagotta (AA.i.118, 410).

A monk named Kaccānagotta is mentioned in the Saṃyuttanikāya (S.ii.18 ff ) as visiting the Buddha at Sāvatthi and questioning him on right view. The Buddha’s discourse on this occasion is referred to by Ānanda in a conversation with Channa (S.iii.134). See also Kātiyānī.

Kañcana-māṇava belonged to the Kaccānagotta (AA.i.116, 410).

The Kaccānagotta is mentioned among the higher castes, together with Moggallāna and Vāsiṭṭha (Vin.iv.6).
