Mattābhaya

Younger brother of Devānampiyatissa.

He witnessed the miracles that attended the arrival of the Buddha’s Relics in Sri Lanka, and, with one thousand others, entered the Order (Mhv.xvii.57 f).

When Mahā-Ariṭṭha recited the Vinaya at the Thupārāma and held the Saṅgha Council (sangīti) at the suggestion of Mahinda, Mattābhaya, with five hundred others, was charged with the duty of learning the Vinaya from him. Sp.i.103.
