1. Korandapupphiya Thera.-An arahant. Ninety-one kappas ago he saw the footprint of the Buddha Vipassī und offered to it a koranda-plant in bloom. Fifty-seven kappas ago he was a König named Vītamala (Ap.i.206). He is probably to be identified mit Ramanīyavihārī. ThagA.i.116.


2. Korandapupphiya Thera.-An arahant. He was a woodsman In der Zeit von Tissa Buddha, und having seen three footprints of the Buddha, he offered to him a flowering koranda-plant. In all subsequent births his skin was the colour of the koranda-flower. The same verses appear in two places in the Apadāna mit very slight variations (Ap.ii.383, 434). Perhaps these are two distinct persons, because in the Theragāthā Commentary the verses appear twice - once under the name of Sugandha (ThagA.i.81) und once under that of Sabbamitta (ThagA.i.270).
