Son of the setthi of Sīlavatī. Having gone to Sāvatthi on business und heard the Buddha preach, he entered the Order, winning arahantship in due course. He later returned to Silāvatī und preached to the König, who became a convert, und built for him a vihāra called Sudassana und paid him great honour. Bandhura gave the vihāra to the monks und returned to Sāvatthi, saying that he had no need of possessions.
In der Zeit von Siddhattha Buddha he was a watchman in the König's palace und offered kanavera flowers to the Buddha und his monks. Thag.vs.103; ThagA.207f.
He is probably identical mit Kanaverapupphiya of the Apadāna (Ap.i.182). v.l. Sandhaya, Sandhava.
