Pācīnavaṃsamigadāya

v.l. Pācīnavaṃsadāya.– A park in the Cetiya kingdom (A.iv.228 f). The Buddha visited it during his tours, and once, while staying there with Meghiya Thera, the latter stopped in a mango grove in the village of Jantugāma, refusing to go any farther (A.iv.163).

The park lay between Bālakaloṇakāragāma and the Pārileyyakavana (DhA.i.47).

Anuruddha, Nandiya, and Kimbila were living there during the time of the quarrel of the monks at Kosambī, and the Buddha visited them on his way to Pārileyyaka (Vin.i.350 f; cp. M.i.205 ff). It was there that Anuruddha became an Arahant (A.iv.228 f; AA.i.108).

Buddhaghosa explains (Ibid., ii.765) that the park was so called because it was to the east of where the Buddha lived (?) and it was covered with green bamboos.
