Thulla-Tissā

A nun. She was present when Mahā-Kassapa, in the company of Ānanda, visited the nuns and taught them. She expressed resentment that Kassapa should dare to teach in the presence of Ānanda. It was, she said, “as if the needle-pedlar should try to sell a needle to the needle-maker.” Ānanda afterwards asked Kassapa to ignore Tissā’s outburst, but she later left the Order. S.ii.215 ff.
