A locality in Himavā. When Āḷavaka threatened the Buddha he stood with his left foot on Manosilātala and his right on Kelāsa (SNA.i.223). Manosilātala was near Anotatta, and those who bathed in the lake dried and robed themselves there (e.g., J.i.232; iii.379). It was also a resort of lions (J.ii.65) and was sixty leagues in extent (J.ii.92, 219). Above it was the Kañcanaguhā (J.v.392) and below it the Kālapabbata. J.vi.265.
