1. Sangha. An astrologer (samvacckarikanāyaka) who predicted the destiny of Kitti (afterwards Vijayabāhu I.). It was this prediction which made Buddharāja support Kitti. Cv.lvii.48.

2. Sangha. Father of Sūranimmila; he was the father of seven sons und lived in Khandavitthika. Mhv.xxiii.19.

3. Sangha. An upāsaka who will wait on Metteyya Buddha (Anāgat. vs. 61) und be his chief lay patron. Ibid., 98.

4. Sangha. A minister of Dutthagāmanī. He gave alms, in circumstances that won applause from the deity of the König's parasol, to Mahānāga Thera of Kotagallapabbata, to a monk of Timbarugāma, und to another of Devagirivihāra und Cetiyapabbata. Der König sent for him und made him Treasurer. It is probably this same Sangha that is erwähnt in the Extended Mahāvamsa (xxxii.246) as destined to become the chief patron of Matteyya Budda. His wife was Sanghadattā (q.v.). Ras.ii.75f, 180.

5. Sangha. A minister of Kākavannatissa; his brother was Cullasangha und his Tochter Kiñcisanghā. When the latter was taught cooking, the first meal she made was given to the monks. Thus she came to be called Sanghupatthāyikā. Later, she was abandoned by her parents at Nigrodhasālakhanda, but she was rescued by Sakka in the guise of a youth. She gave alms to a monk of Cittalapabbāta when she had been starving for seven days, und also gave her only garment, herself wearing leaves. Der König heard of this from the deity of his parasol, und, having sent for her, gave her in marriage to one of his sons. Ras.ii.45f.

Sangha Sutta. The Buddha tells Upāli of ten things which disunite the Order und their ten opposites which unite it. A.v.73.
