Paduma Buddha

The eighth of the twenty-four Buddhas.

The Buddhavaṃsa Commentary states that his full name was Mahāpaduma, that he was so called because on the day of his birth a shower of lotuses fell over Jambudīpa, and that, at that time, the Bodhisatta was a lion.

Bu ix; BuA.146 ff; J.i.36; Mhv.i.7; DhA.i.84.
