Samiddhisummana

A deva who lived in the Rājāyatana tree standing at the gate of Jetavana. He accompanied the Buddha on his second visit to Sri Lanka. In his last birth he had been a man in Nāgadīpa, and seeing some Pacceka Buddhas eating their meal, had provided them with Rājāyatana branches with which to clean their bowls. The Rājāyatana-tree was held as parasol over the Buddha’s head on his journey to Sri Lanka and was left behind in Kalyāṇi for the Nāgā to worship. Mhv.i.52 ff.
