Saṅkhapāla

1. Saṅkhapāla.– The Bodhisatta born as a Nāga king. See the Saṅkhapāla Jātaka. Saṅkhapāla is evidently a generic name for the Nāgā of that world.

2. Saṅkhapāla.– A king of Ekabala. Mahosadha, hearing that he was collecting arms and assembling an army, sent a parrot to find out about it (s.v. Umaṅga Jātaka). The parrot reported that there was no reason to fear Saṅkhapāla. J.vi.390.

3. Saṅkhapāla.– A lake in the Mahiṃsaka-raṭṭha. It was the residence of the Nāga king, Saṅkhapāla. From the lake rose the river Kannapennā. J.v.162.

4. Saṅkhapāla Thera.– A pupil of Buddhadatta, to whom he dedicated his Vinayavinicchaya. Gv. 40; P.L.C. 109.
