Senaka

1. Senaka.– A minister of King Vedeha. See the Umaṅga Jātaka, a large portion of which is devoted to the battle of wits between Senaka and Mahosadha. Senaka once killed a courtesan in order to take her ornaments (J.vi.382). He is identified with Saccaka. J.vi.478.

2. Senaka.– The Bodhisatta, born as a brahmin; he was the minister of Janaka, king of Bārāṇasī. See the Sattubhasta Jātaka.

3. Senaka.– The Bodhisatta, born as a brahmin; he was the minister of Madda, king of Bārāṇasī. See the Paṇṇaka Jātaka.

4. Senaka.– King of Bārāṇasī. See the Kharaputta Jātaka.

5. Senaka.– A monkey, born as the nephew of the Bodhisatta. See the Tinduka Jātaka. He is identified with Mahānāma the Sākyan. J.ii.79.

6. Senaka Thera.– He was born in a brahmin family as the son of Uruvela-Kassapa’s sister. Senaka heard the Buddha teach at the Gayāphagguna festival, was converted, entered the Order, and attained Arahantship.

In the time of Sikhī Buddha he gave to the Buddha a handful of peacock feathers (Thag.vss.287‑90; ThagA.i.388 f). He is evidently identical with Morahatthiya of the Apadāna. Ap.ii.403.
