Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Cīvara Sutta:Once,when Mahā Kassapa was at Veluvana in Rājagaha,Ananda returned from a tour in the Dakkhināgiri,with thirty monks,mostly youths.They were ill-behaved,and Kassapa blamed Ananda for going about with them,calling him ”corn-tramper,” ”despoiler of families,” and,finally,”a boy.” Ananda gently reminded him that being grey-haired he could hardly be called a boy,but Kassapa refused to listen.Thulla-Nandā,hearing of this,vented her displeasure on Kassapa by reminding him that he was once a heretical teacher.Kassapa there-upon remonstrated with Ananda,pointing out that he was a very devoted follower and pupil of the Buddha and relating how,on one occasion,the Buddha accepted from him the gift of his soft robe,giving him,in return,the Buddha’s rag-robe.Well might he,he said,claim to be a real son of the Buddha.S.1217ff
