Janasandha

1. Janasandha.– King of Bārāṇasī, father of Ādāsamukha. His servant was Gāmaṇicanda. For their story see the Gāmaṇicanda Jātaka (J.ii.297 ff ); Janasandha is also referred to as Dasaratha (e.g., p.299). He was called Janasandha because he won the hearts of men by four ways of kindness (catūhi saṅgahavatthūhi sandahanato). J.ii.299.

2. Janasandha.– A warrior (khattiya), father of Tissa Buddha (J.i.40; Bu, xviii.16). He seems to have been called also Saccasandha. BuA.188.

3. Janasandha.– A title given to Dhanañjaya Korabya, king of Kurukkhetta (J.vi.291). The scholiast explains it thus: mittaganthanena mittajanassa santhānakaro.

4. Janasandha.– Son of Brahmadatta and king of Bārāṇasī; a former life of the Bodhisatta. See Janasandha Jātaka.
