Padumuttara Buddha

1. Padumuttara.– The tenth of the twenty-four Buddhas.

In his time, the Bodhisatta was governor of a province (raṭṭhika) called Jaṭika (Jaṭila). Bu.xi.1 ff; BuA.157 ff; J.i.37, 44; DhA.i.99, 417; iii.146, etc; also Ap.i.57, 63, 101, 107; Mtu.ii.58.

It is said (e.g., MT.59) that in the time of Padumuttara there did not exist a single heretic.

Many of the eminent disciples of Gotama Buddha are said to have first conceived their desire for their respective positions in the time of Padumuttara Buddha, after seeing similar rank conferred on Padumuttara’s various disciples in acknowledgment of their special attainments — e.g., Ānanda, Aññā-Koṇḍañña, Anuruddha, Bāhiya Dārucīriya, Bhaddā-Kuṇḍalakesā, Bhaddā-Kāpilānī, Bhaddā-Kaccānā, Bhaddiya, Cūḷapanthaka, Dabba Mallaputta, Dhammadinnā, Kāludāyī, Kaṅkhā-Revata, Khadiravaniya-Revata, Kisāgotamī, Kumāra-Kassapa, Kuṇḍadhāna, Mahā-Kaccāna, Mahā-Kappina, Mahā-Kassapa, Mahā-Koṭṭhika, Mahāpajāpatī, Mogharāja, Nanda, Paṭācārā, Piliṇḍavaccha, Piṇḍola-Bhāradvāja, Puṇṇa-Mantāṇiputta, Rādha, Rāhula, Raṭṭhapāla, Sāgata, Sakulā, Siṅgālakamātā, Sīvalī, Sobhita, Soṇā, Soṇa-Koḷivisa, Soṇa-Kuṭikaṇṇa, Subhūti, Sundarī-Nandā, Upāli, Upasena, Upavāṇa, Uppalavaṇṇā, Uruvela-Kassapa, Vakkali, Vaṅgīsa, Vaṅgantaputta, and Vappa.
