Uggata

1. Uggata.– See Ugga (4).

2. Uggata.– A warrior (khattiya) of the city of Sumaṅgala, father of Sujāta Buddha. J.i.38; Bu.xiii.20.

3. Uggata.– The Kāliṅga king who, with Bhīmaratha, king of Sañjayantī, and Atthaka, king of Hastināpura, sought the Bodhisatta Sarabhaṅga to learn from him where the kings Kalābu, Nālikira, Ajjuna, and Daṇḍakī had been born after the destruction of themselves and their kingdoms as a result of their ill-treatment of holy men. J.v.135 ff.

Their story is given in the Sarabhaṅga Jātaka (q.v.)

The scholiast of the Jātaka (J.v.137) takes Uggata to be not the name of the Kāliṅga king but a descriptive epithet, and explains it by saying “cando viya suriyo viya ca pākato paññāto.”

The Mahāvastu (iii.364 f), however, definitely mentions Ugga as the name of the king, in the same way as Bhīmaratha and Asthamaka (Atthaka), and gives the capitals of the two latter as Sañjayantī and Hastināpura respectively.

4. Uggata.– King during the time of Sobhita Buddha. He built a vihāra named Surinda at Sunandavatī and another named Dhammaganārāma at Mekhalā and dedicated them to the Buddha and the Order. At the festival of dedication of the former one billion became Arahants and at that of the latter, nine hundred million (Bu.vii.9 f; BuA.139).

5. Uggata.– Twenty-nine world-cycles ago there were sixteen kings of the name of Uggata, all previous births of Citakapūjaka Thera. Ap.i.151.

6. Uggata.– King of one thousand and fifty-one world-cycles ago; a previous life of Dhajadāyaka Thera. Ap.i.109.

7. Uggata.– Fourteen world-cycles ago there were four kings named Uggata, previous births of Parappasādaka (Ap.i.114) or Bhūta Thera (ThagA.i.494).
