1. Uparevata. A sāmanera, son of
Padumuttara Buddha. It was the sight of this novice which made Rāhula, then born
as the Nāga-king Sankha, wish to become a Buddha's son (SnA.i.340; MA.ii.722).
According to the Buddhavamsa (xi.21), however, Padumuttara's son was called
Uttara. Uparevata, though very young in years (tarunalalitadāraka), was
possessed of great iddhi-powers and the Nāga-king was greatly impressed by him
(AA.i.142f. Here the nāga king is called Pathayindhara).
2. Uparevata. Nephew of Sāriputta. When
Sāriputta went to Nālaka on his last visit, in order to die there, Uparevata saw
him outside the village, seated under a banyan tree. He was asked to announce
Sāriputta's arrival to the latter's mother, and to make preparations for
accommodating Sāriputta's five hundred followers (DA.ii.551; SA.iii.175).
