  • Jambukhādaka

A Paribbājaka.

The Samyutta Nikāya records visits paid by him to Sāriputta at Nālakagāma and discussions between them on various topics, such as nibbāna, arahantship, the Āsavas, sakkāya, ignorance, the Noble Eightfold Path, etc. (S.iv.251-60)

The Commentary (SA.iii.91) says that he was a nephew of Sāriputta and a channa-paribbājaka.
