Mahāsubhaddā

1. Mahāsubhaddā.– Chief wife of the Bodhisatta when he was the elephant king Chaddanta. J.v.37, 39.

2. Mahāsubhaddā.– Eldest daughter of Anāthapiṇḍika. Before her marriage she waited on the monks who came to her father’s house and became a Stream-winner (DhA.i.128; J.i.93). According to the Aṅguttaranikāya Commentary (AA.i.146, 148 f ) she married an unbeliever, a householder of Ugganagara, and the Buddha, at her request, went to her house with five hundred monks (chief among whom was Kuṇḍadhāna) to receive alms. However, see Cūḷasubhaddā.
