Saddha

A monk who visited the Buddha at Ñātika in the Giñjakāvasatha, when the Buddha taught him the Saddha Sutta (A.v.323 f). v.l. Sandha (see GS.v.204, n.2; and 216, n.2).

It is, perhaps, the same monk who is mentioned as Saddho (v.l. Sandho) Kaccāyano. (S.ii.153, Giñjakāvasatha Sutta). He asks the Buddha a question on the elements (dhātu), and the Buddha explains it to him. In neither case does the Commentary say anything about Saddho (or Sandho).

The translator of the Saṃyuttanikāya regards saddho as an epithet.
