, m., Npr. 1. of a thera (PPN I 393—
396), one of the "80 000" who went forth from the Sakya-
kula (Sp 665,4), thus known as ~ Sakyaputta (on this
specification Horner, Book of Discipline
foll.). In the canon mentioned only in Vin, where he is
called (in conformity with rules, cf. Horner, I. c. I p.
XXXVIII — XL; R. 0. Franke, JPTS I 908, 18 — 44;
CPD s. v. āyasma(t), āvuso) a) in narration and by
bhikkhus: āyasma(t) ~ Sakyaputta (e. g. Vin I 154,1;
II 297,34; III 211,5,13,33; 220,15; IV 94,21 etc.), voc.
āvuso ~a, e. g. I 303,27; II 168,9-11; III 215,
18 etc., b) by laymen: ayya ~, e.g. III 215,2-19 etc.,
the contrast between laymen's and
bhikkhus' usage
being conspicuous
I 214,1-5 = IV 98,33 foll. etc., Ill
215,27-35 etc.), c) by the Buddha, simply ~ (nom.,
mostly voc.
~a), e. g. I 154,7; III 216,3 ≠ 218,22 etc.,
cf. contrast between the
Buddha's usage and narration
I 214,6-8 = IV 99,5-7; in later works, these distinctions
are not likewise observed; he is called either simply
~, in
(Dhp-a III 141,24; Ja II 444,23; Sās 157,
25) as well as by the Buddha (Ja II 441,18, III 333,2),
or āyasmā ~o (Sv 1025,19), āvuso ~o Sakyaputto
(Ja II 441,15; III 332,31), but also °-tthera (Ja II
441,5; III 332,27; Vism 81,2); Dhp-a III 13,12 °-Sak-
yaputta, see s. v.; — ~ is clever and popular, but his
conduct is often objectionable and remains proverbial
as such. He is well versed in
dhamma and a persuasive
preacher, but he takes personal advantage thereof
Ja II 441,10 foll.; III 332,10 foll. and various other
cases summarized
PPN). Blamed as moghapurisa by
Buddha, Vin I 154,11 etc.; his misbehaviour gives
rise to eight cases of
nissaggiya (no. 6, 8 — 10, 18, 20,
25, 27), seven cases of pācittiya (no. 9; 42 — 46; 59);
he is guilty of āpatti dukkaṭassa, Vin I 153,24 — 154,11,
a case quoted in 19th cent. Burma by Paññasāmi, Sāsk
157,20 foll. In ct.s his conduct is quoted as typical of the
bhikkhu who advocates ascetic life, but is far from
scrupulous himself,
Sv 1025,19, Mp I 162,4-8, Vism
81,1-4. As such, he is the subject of dḥamma-desanā
Dhp-a III 139,10 — 142,13 (°-Sakyaputta-tthera-vat-
thu, below), where he is shown as a cheat in this life
and a jackal in a previous birth; as a former
kāka in Ja II 441,4 — 442,26; — 2. of the senāpati of
Magadha, when Vassakāra brāhmaṇa was Magadha-
mahāmatta, M III 13,2 (PPN I 396); — 3. of (four )
paccekabuddhas listed in the Isigili-sutta: Ānanda-
Nando ~o dvādasa, M III 70,22 (cattāro ~ā, Ps IV
129,30; PPN I 396); — 4. of a cakkavatti of 57 kap-
pas ago, previous birth of Tinduka-dāyaka-tthera,
Ap 201,3 (PPN I 396); — 5. of one in a group of three
mythical fishes,
