Sīhahanu

Father of Suddhodana, and therefore grandfather of the Buddha. His father was Jayasena. Sīhahanu had five sons and two daughters:

  1. Suddhodana
  2. Dhotodana
  3. Sakkodana
  4. Sukkodana
  5. Amitodana
  1. Amitā
  2. Pamitā

His wife was Kaccānā (Mhv.ii.15 f; Dpv.iii.44 f). Asita was his chief priest (purohita).

Until the time of Sīhahanu, great friendship existed between the Sākyā and the Koliyā (SNA.i.356).
