Abhiñjika Thera

v.l. Abhijika, Ābhiñjika.– A co-resident of Anuruddha. On one occasion when the Buddha asks Mahā-Kassapa to teach the monks, the latter reports that it is impossible to talk to them because monks like Bhaṇḍa, colleague of Ānanda, and Abhiñjika, were engaged in wordy warfare.

The Buddha sends for them and admonishes them. Having heard his discourse, they express regret for their behaviour and promise to cultivate self-restraint in the future. S.ii.204‑5.
