Uposathā

A pious lay-devotee of Sāketa. She did many deeds of merit, and was born in Tāvatiṃsa, her abode being known as the Uposatha-vimāna. It is said that she was known in Sāketa as Uposathā, because of the life she led. She expresses to Mahā-Moggallāna her remorse that she should have desired to be born in Nandanavana, instead of listening to the Buddha’s teaching and putting an end to all birth. Vv.20 f; VvA.115 f.
