Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Jotidāsa Thera:A wealthy brahmin of Pādiyattha (Pāniyattha).One day,seeing Mahā Kassapa going for alms,he entertained the Elder and requested him to preach.On a hill near the village Jotidāsa built a vihāra for Kassapa and provided him with the requisites.Moved by the Elder’s teaching,he left the world and soon after became an arahant.After ten years - during which he learnt the Three Pitakas,being specially proficient in the Vinaya - while on his way to Sāvatthi to see the Buddha,he entered a Paribbājakārāma,and there had a discussion with the Paribbājakas on how to burn away evil.At the end of the discussion,they were ordained under him.

In the time of Sikhī Buddha he was a householder and,seeing the Buddha,offered him a kāsumārika-fruit (Thag.143-4; ThagA.i.264f).

He is probably identical with Kāsumāraphaladāyaka of the Apadāna ii.445.But see Sīvaka.
