Kūtadanta:A very learned brahmin of Khānumata,which village had been given to him by King Bimbisāra as a brahmadeyya.The Buddha arrived at Khānumata when Kūtadanta was making preparations for a great sacrifice and,wishing this sacrifice to be successful,he consulted the Buddha on the holding of sacrifices.The Buddha preached to him the Kūtadanta Sutta.At the end of the discourse he became a Sotāpanna (D.i.127ff).

The conversion of Kūtadanta is considered one of the great spiritual victories won by the Buddha (E.g.,J.vi.329).As a disputant,Kūtadanta is classed with Ambatthaka,Sonadanda and Saccaka.E.g.,MA.ii.697.
