Vedhañña, Vedañña

A clan of Sākyā.

Buddhaghosa says (DA.iii.905) they were skilled in archery (hence their name the “Archers”). They learnt their craft in a technical college (sippuggahanapāsāda) built in a mango grove.

It was there that the Pāsādika Sutta was taught (D.iii.17).

From the Sāmagāma Sutta (M.ii.244) it would appear that these Sākyā lived in Sāmagāma.
