Mahimsāsaka:An heretical sect,which broke off from the Theravādins at the same time as the Vajjiputtakas.The sect was later divided into the Sabbatthivādins and the Dhammaguttikas (Mhv.v.6,8; Dpv.v.45,47; MT.174f.; Mhv.96).They held that the truth of nirodha had two aspects (Kvu.ii.11; see also viii.9; xviii.6; xix.8; xx.5; and Rockhill,op.cit.,182-186,191-192).Buddhadeva Thera,at whose request the Jātakatthakathā was written,belonged to the Mahimsāsaka Vamsa (J.i.1).
