Amittatāpanā

The young wife of the brahmin Jūjaka of Kāliṅga.

She had been given away by her parents in payment of a debt. Being mocked by the friends she met at the watering-place, she insisted on being provided with servants. It was in order to meet with her wishes that Jūjuka went to Vessantara to beg for the latter’s children to be used as slaves (J.vi.521‑4).

In the present Buddha-age, Amittatāpanā was Ciñcamāṇavikā. Ibid., 593.
