Majjhima Thera

An Arahant. He went, after the Third Council, as teacher to the Himavā country (Mhv.xii.6), accompanied by four others: Kassapagotta, Durabhissara, Sahadeva, and Mūlakadeva.¹ Majjhima taught the Dhammacakkappavattana Sutta and eight hundred million persons became Stream-winners. The five elders, separately, converted five kingdoms, and each of them ordained one hundred thousand persons. Mhv.xii.41 ff.

¹ Dpv.viii.10; MT. (317) has Dundubhissara for Durabhissara; Mbv. (115) agrees with MT., but has Sahassadeva; Sp. (i.68) gives their names as Kassapagotta, Alokadeva, Dundubhissara, and Sahadeva.
