A name given to the monk who was later known as Vanavāsī-Tissa(q.v.) Though only seven years old, he was of great merit, and when he saw monks suffering from the cold he undertook to find them blankets. One thousand monks went to Sāvatthi with him, and in a very short while he obtained for them more than the requisite number of blankets. Thenceforth he was called by the name of Kambaladāyaka.
