Sāgara

1. Sāgara.– The personal attendant of Sumedha Buddha. J.i.38; Bu.xii.23.

2. Sāgara.– A khattiya, father of Atthadassī Buddha and husband of Sudassanā. He lived in Sobhana (Bu.xv.14; J.i.39). The Apadāna (Ap.i.153; cf. ThagA.i.153) mentions a monk, named Sāgara, a disciple of Atthadassī Buddha, who continued to live after the Buddha’s death. The two may have been identical.

3. Sāgara.– See Guṇasāgara.

4. Sāgara.– A king of long ago, mentioned in a list of persons, who, though they held great almsgivings, could not attain beyond the sensual worlds (kāmāvacara) (J.vi.99). It is probably the same king that is mentioned in the Bhūridatta Jātaka (J.vi.203) as having become a mahesakkha deva after death.

5. Sāgara.– elder son of Mahāsāgara, king of Uttaramadhurā. Upasāgara was his younger brother. Sāgara was killed by the Andhakaveṇhu­dāsaputtā. The story is given in the Ghaṭa Jātaka. J.iv.79 f.

6. Sāgara.– A king of the line of Mahāsammata. He was the son of Mucalinda and father of Sāgaradeva. Dpv.iii.6; Mhv.ii.3.
