  • Gosingasālavanadāya

1. Gosingasālavanadāya. A forest tract near Nādikā. Once, when Anuruddha, Nandiya and Kimbila were living there, they were visited by the Buddha, who came from Giñjakāvasatha. The result of the visit was the preaching of the Cūlagosinga Sutta (q.v.) (M.i.205f). On another occasion, when the Buddha was staying there with many eminent monks, among whom were Sāriputta, Moggallāna and others, their conversation led to the preaching of the Mahāgosinga Sutta (q.v.) (M.i.212f).

2. Gosingasālavanadāya. A forest tract near Vesāli. When the Buddha was living in the Kūtāgārasāla, in the Mahavana, he was visited by many people and there was great disturbance. In order to find quiet and solitude, certain monks, among whom were Cāla, Upacāla, Kakkata, Kalimbha, Nikata and Katissaha, retired into this forest (A.v.133).
