Pali Word Grammar from Pali Myanmar Dictionary
nandiya: nandiya(pu)
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Nandiya:1.Nandiya TheraHe belonged to a Sākiyan family ofKapilavatthu,and was called Nandiya because his birth brought bliss.He left the world at the same time asAnuruddha,Kimbila and the others,and he soon attained arahantship.Thereafter he dwelt with his companions in the Pācīnavamsamigadāya (Vin.i.350f.It was to them that the Upakkilesa Sutta was preached,M.iii.155.Later,they seem to have lived in theGosingasālavana,M.i.205).It is said that Marā appeared before him in a terrible form,but Nandiya drove him away.

In the time of Padumuttara Buddha,Nandiya built an altar of sandalwood at the Buddha’s cetiya and held great celebrations.Fifteen kappas ago Nandiya was eight times born as king under the name of Samatta (Samagga) (Thag.25; ThagA.82f.) He is probably identical with Saparivāriya of the Apadāna (i.172).

According to the Mahāvastu (iii.177) Nandiya (Nandika) was the son of Sukrodana.

He was a special friend of Kimbila.ThagA.i.276.

2.NandiyaA Sākiyan layman,evidently to be distinguished from the above.He visited the Buddha at the Nigrodhārāma inKapilavatthu and had a discussion with him on the different kinds of Ariyan disciple,the one who dwells in remissness and the one who is earnest (S.v.397ff.; see also p.403).Later,when the Buddha returned to Sāvatthi for the rainy season,Nandiya also went there,finding some business to do,and from time to time he visited the Buddha.At the end of the rains,when the Buddha and the monks were about to start on tour,Nandiya went to the Buddha and was taught the eleven conditions which lead to the destruction of evil.A.v.334ff.

3.NandiyaA householder of Benares.He was very pious and looked after his parents.When they wished him to marryRevatī,he refused because she belonged to a family of unbelievers.But when Revatī offered to help Nandiya in all his work,he agreed and they were married.When Nandiya’s parents died,leaving him very rich,he used the money to feed the poor and needy.Later he built a quadruple hall in the great monastery at Isipatana and furnished it with great splendour.On the day of its dedication to the Buddha and the monks,as the water of donation fell on the Buddha’s hand,there arose in Tāvatimsa a celestial mansion,measuring twelve leagues in each direction,for Nandiya’s use.During one ofMoggallāna’s visits to Tāvatimsa he saw this mansion,and was told by many nymphs that they were awaiting Nandiya’s arrival (DhA.iii.290ff).The Vimāna Vatthu Commentary (VvA.222f ) goes on to say that after a life devoted to good deeds Nandiya died,and was born in his celestial mansion,and that Revatī,on the death of her husband,stopped the gifts of alms,abused the monks,and was cast alive into theUssada niraya by the orders ofVessavana.

4.NandiyaA Paribbājaka who visits the Buddha at Jetavana and asks him the conditions for the attainment of nibbana.The Buddha teaches him the Noble Eightfold Path.S.v.11.

5.NandiyaThe Bodhisatta born as a monkey.For his story see theCūla Nandiya Jātaka (J.ii.199ff.).He is also called Mahā Nandiya to distinguish him from his brother.

6.NandiyaThe Bodhisatta born as a deer.See the Nandiyamiga Jātaka.J.iii.270ff.

7.NandiyaA king of sixteen kappas ago; a former birth ofTilamutthidāyaka.Ap.i.235

2.Nandiya SuttaThe Sākiyan Nandiya (Nandiya 2) visits the Buddha and learns the difference between the Ariyan disciple who is remise and the one who is earnest.S.v.397ff.

3.Nandiya SuttaNandiya,the Sākiyan,is taught by the Buddha hat the Ariyan disciple who is possessed of unwavering loyalty to the Buddha,the Dhamma and the Sangha,and who has the Ariyan qualities,is bound for enlightenment.S.v.403.
