Yasuttarā

1. Yasuttarā.– One of the palaces occupied by Paduma Buddha in his last lay life. BuA.146; but see Paduma Buddha.

2. Yasuttarā.– A devatā of Tāvatiṃsa. She had been a resident of Bārāṇasī. She once spun two robes, and, having washed them, she offered them to the Buddha. The Buddha accepted the gift and taught her and she became a Stream-winner. After death she was born in Tāvatiṃsa as Yasuttarā and was much loved by Sakka. When she realised that her good fortune was due to her faith in the Buddha, she visited him at Jetavana and told him her story. It is said that, owing to the power of her merit, she owned a most marvellous elephant. Vv.iv.3; VvA.181 ff.
