Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Gaddula Sutta:1.Gaddula Sutta (v.l.Baddula).-Incalculable is the beginning of samsāra and the untaught puthujjana,having wrong notions of self,revolve from birth to birth,like a dog tied by a leash to a pillar or stake round which it unceasingly chases.S.iii.149.

2.Gaddula Sutta.-Just as a dog tied by a leash to a strong pillar cannot escape,so the untaught puthujjanas cannot escape from the five khandhas.Mind is even more diverse than a show piece (caranacitta).

As a painter fashions all kinds of likenesses,so the puthujjana creates and recreates the five khandas.S.iii.151f.
