Kesava

1. Kesava.– An ascetic in Himavā. His story is given in the Kesava Jātaka. He is identified with Baka Brahmā (J.iii.145; S.i.144; SA.i.165; MA.i.555). He is sometimes addressed as Kesi. e.g., J.iii.144, 362.

2. Kesava.– An Ascetic, also called Nārada. He saw Atthadassī Buddha and paid him homage. He was a previous birth of Paviṭṭha Thera, who is evidently identical with Ekadaṃsanīya Thera. Ap.i.168; ThagA.i.185.

3. Kesava.– Another name for Vāsudeva (q.v.) It is said that he was so called on account of his beautiful hair (kesasobhanatāya). J.iv.84; PvA.94.
