Paṅgura vihāra

A monastery in Hatthibhoga in the south of Sri Lanka. In front of its refectory stood a paṅgura tree. One day the devatā of the tree heard a novice recite the Mahādhammasamādāna Sutta and applauded the recital. On being questioned by the novice, he told him that he had heard the Buddha teach the sutta but had been unable to see him, there being so many deities present more important than himself. It is said that the devatā became a Stream-winner on the very day of this conversation. MA.i.530 f.
