2.Mahāsena. A brahmin,friend of Vanganta,father of Sāriputta.He was poor,and,out of compassion for him,Sāriputta came to his house for alms.Twice Mahāsena hid himself,having nothing to give,but,one day,receiving a bowl of rice porridge and a small piece of cloth,he thought of Sāriputta.The Elder had just risen from a trance,and,becoming aware of Mahāsena’s desire,he visited him,and was given the porridge and the piece of cloth with a prayer from Mahāsena,”May I realize the Truth you have seen.” After death,Mahāsena was born as the novice and was called Vanavāsī Tissa.DhA.ii.84.
