Kāḷadīghagāma

A village in Sri Lanka, evidently near Kalyāṇi-vihāra, for the monks of the vihāra are spoken of as visiting the village for alms. A girl of the village once met a young monk who went there, and fell in love so deeply that she died of her longing for him; when the monk realised what he had missed by not being aware of her love, he, too, died of a broken heart. SnA.i.70; ApA.i.128; the story is slightly different in AA.i.13 f.
