Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Korandapupphiya Thera:1.Korandapupphiya Thera.-An arahant.Ninety-one kappas ago he saw the footprint of the Buddha Vipassī and offered to it a koranda-plant in bloom.Fifty-seven kappas ago he was a king named Vītamala (Ap.i.206).He is probably to be identified with Ramanīyavihārī.ThagA.i.116.



2.Korandapupphiya Thera.-An arahant.He was a woodsman in the time of Tissa Buddha,and having seen three footprints of the Buddha,he offered to him a flowering koranda-plant.In all subsequent births his skin was the colour of the koranda-flower.The same verses appear in two places in the Apadāna with very slight variations (Ap.ii.383,434).Perhaps these are two distinct persons,because in the Theragāthā Commentary the verses appear twice - once under the name of Sugandha (ThagA.i.81) and once under that of Sabbamitta (ThagA.i.270).
