Vaḍḍhamātā Therī

An Arahant, mother of Vaḍḍha Thera.

After the birth of Vaḍḍha she heard a monk teach, joined the Order, and became an Arahant. She rebuked Vaḍḍha when he visited her alone and without his cloak, and, later, when he asked for her advice, gave it to him and encouraged him. Then Vaḍḍha developed insight and became an Arahant. ThigA.171 f; her conversation with Vaḍḍha and his declaration to her after becoming an Arahant are included in the Thig.vs.204‑12.
