Subāhu Thera

1. Subāhu Thera–. He was the son of a wealthy family of Bārāṇasī, and was the friend of Yasa. When Yasa and his companions joined the Order Subāhu followed his example, and they all became Arahants. Vin.i.19 f.

2. Subāhu Thera.– He was the son of a Malla rājā of Pāvā. He joined the Order on the occasion of the Buddha’s first visit to Rājagaha and attained Arahantship together with his friends Godhika, Valliya, and Uttiya. Bimbisāra built a hut for them but forgot the roof; there was no rain until this defect had been made good (Thag.vs.52; ThagA.i.123 f).

Ninety-nine world-cycles ago Subāhu paid homage to Siddhattha Buddha. Thirty-seven world-cycles ago he was king sixteen times, under the name of Agada. He is perhaps identical with Ñāṇasaññaka of the Apadāna. Ap.i.140 f.

3. Subāhu.– Five hundred world-cycles ago there were thirty-four kings of this name, previous births of Ekāsaniya (Sīvalī) Thera. Ap.i.150; ThagA.i.139.

4. Subāhu.– A tiger. See the Vaṇṇāroha Jātaka and Tittira Jātaka. He is identified with Mahā-Moggallāna. J.iii.192, 540.

5. Subāhu.– A Pacceka Buddha. M.iii.70; ApA.i.107.
