Seniya

1. Seniya.– A naked ascetic who practised the “Canine vow,” behaving like a dog. After his visit to the Buddha, as recorded in the Kukkuravatika Sutta (q.v.), he joined the Order and, in due course, became an Arahant. M.i.387 ff.

2. Seniya.– The personal name, according to Buddhaghosa, of King Bimbisāra (MA.i.292; but see SNA.ii.448, mahatiyā senāya samannāgatattā), who is almost always referred to as Seniya Bimbisāra. Dhammapāla says (UdA.104), however, that Bimbisāra was called Seniya either because he had a large army, or because he belonged to the Seniya clan (mahatiyā senāya samannāgātatta vā Seniyagottatā vā).
