Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Mahāsatthivassa Thera:A resident of Katthakasālā parivena.King Vasabha went to the monastery,as the monk lay dying,intending to worship him,but at the door he heard the groans of the ill man,and disgusted that,after sixty years of monastic life,he should not be able to conquer his pain,he did not enter.This was reported to the Elder,and putting forth great effort,he subdued his pain and sent word to the king to come to him.Vasabha entered,and prostrating himself before the Elder,said,”I worship you,not for your arahantship,but for the exertion you put forth while yet a puthujjana.” DA.i.291.
