|Makhādeva：A mango grove in Mithilā where Makhādeva lived in meditation after retiring from household life （J．i．138 f．； vi．95）．
This grove existed even in the time of the Buddha，and during his stay there with Ananda he preached the Makhādeva Sutta （M．ii．74）．
Buddhaghosa explains （MA．ii．732； see also Mtu．iii．450） that the garden was originally planned by Makhādeva，and that other kings，from time to time，replaced trees which had died．
