eka-sāṭaka

, mfn., 1. wearing one robe, instead of
two
(v. BD Up. 43 n. 3), hence regarded as indecent; 2.
the "one robe
(ascetics)" (v. BD V p. 191 n. 6), a
derogatory designation of a non-Buddhist sect; evidence
is scanty, identification is hardly possible;
— 1. ekaṁ
sāṭakaṁ dehī ti . . . amhākaṁ kho bhante kula-puttakā-
naṁ kismiṁ viya ~aṁ gantuṁ, Vin III 211,9 (Vjb Be
1960 241,2: ~an ti bhāva-napuṁsakaṁ); kissa tvaṁ
ayyo ~o āgacchasī ti, 211,15 ("why do you come with
(only) one robe?"); — applied to a female ascetic: ni-
gaṇṭna-cāritta-vasena ~ikā (BeCe so; Ee w. r. ~ā), Thī-a
107,5 ad Thī 107 ("eka-sāṭī", not specified as nigaṇṭhī);
v. also Eka-sāṭaka s. v.; — 2. in stock-lists enumerating
various classes of sectarians
(cf. eka-sāṭa): satta ca jaṭi-
lā, satta ca nigaṇṭhā, satta ca acelā, satta ca ~ā, satta
ca paribbājakā, S I 78,2,8 ≠ Ud 65,6 (eka-sāṭā, q.v.);
acira-pakkantesu sattasu ca acelesu sattasu ca ~esu sat-
tasu ca paribbājakesu, S I 78,14 ≠ Ud 65,19; yathā . . .
nigaṇṭhā pārupanti, yathā ca ekacce paribbājakā . ..,
yathā ca ~ā manussā, Kkh 147,30 = Sp 1213,8; — only
their outward aspect is described in ct.s, but the descrip-
tions conflict:
~ā ti °-nigaṇṭhā viya ekaṁ pilotika-khaṇ-
daṁ hatthe bandhitvā eken' antena (Ee so; Be tenâpi)
sarīrassa purima-bhāgaṁ paticchādetvā vicaranakā,
Ud-a 330,20-21 ad Ud 65,6 ≠ Mp III 394,2-3 ad A III
383,28 (more briefly); yathā ~āmanussā nivattha-sāṭa-
kassa ekena antena piṭṭhiṁ pārupitvā ubho kaṇṇe
ubhosu aṁsa-kūṭesu ṭhapenti, Kkh 147,30 = Sp 1213,8;
~ ā following nigaṇṭhā, in stock definitions of the six
abhijātis (v. s.v.): lohitâbhijāti paññattā: nigaṇṭhā ~ā
(Ee eka-sāvakā results from a w. r. of Singh. Mss.), A
III 383,28 ≠ Sv 162,21 (ad D I 54,4) ≠ Ps III 121,10 (ad
M I 407,35) ≠ Spk II 343,3 (ad S III 211,23); — Hare's
translation "Here is the red: Jains and loin-cloth folk"

[GS III 273] implies asyndeton, rather than ~ā as an
epith. of
nigaṇṭhā, as Basham takes it [Ājīvikas, pp.
109, 139, 243], ~ and nigaṇṭhas perhaps not being
identical but sharing common features;
— °-pāruta, n.,
the draping of a one-cloth ascetic (to be avoided by the
bhikkhu as being included among the gihi-pārutas [Vin
II 137,11 foll.; cf. BD V p. 191 n. 6]); ~aṁ, Kkh 147,24
= Sp 1213,1.
