Khaṇḍadeviyāputta

A monk, one of the associates of Devadatta, mentioned with Kokālika, Kaṭamorakatissa, and Samuddadatta. They helped Devadatta in his attempt to cause a rift in the Saṅgha (Vin.ii.196; iii.171). Khaṇḍadeviyāputta defended Devadatta when others blamed him (Vin.iii.174) and was held in great esteem by Thullanandā (Vin.iii.66; iv.335). The Khuddakapāṭha Commentary (KhpA.126) mentions him in a list of wicked persons, together with those mentioned above, Ciñcamāṇavikā, and the brother of Dīghavidassa (Dīghavidassa-bhātā).
