Concise Pali-English Dictionary by A.P. Buddhadatta Mahathera
nerañjarā:[f.] name of a river.
Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Nerañjarā:1.NerañjarāA river.After the Enlightenment,the Buddha lived under theAjapāla Nigrodha atUruvelā,on the banks of this river.There Māra tempted him,and,later,Brahmā persuaded him to preach the Dhamma.

Vin.i.1ff.; SN.vs.425ff.; cp.Mtu.ii.238; Lal.327 (261); S.i.103f; 122,136ff.; v.167,185,232; Ud.i.1 4; ii.1; iii.10; A.ii.20f; D.ii.267.

The Commentaries say (E.g.,J.i.68ff.; DhA.i.71; BuA.238) that when the Buddha,having realized the futility of austerities,left thePañcavaggiyas,he retired to Uruvelā,on the banks of the Nerañjarā,and there,just before the Enlightenment,Sujātā gave him a meal of milk rice,taking him to be a god.Before eating the food,he bathed in the ford calledSuppatittha.Under the bed of the river lay the abode of the Nāga king,Kāla.There was a sāla grove on the banks,where the Buddha spent the afternoon previous to the night of the Enlightenment.

Three explanations are given of the name:

(1) Its waters are pleasant (nelam jalam assā ti = nelañjalā,the r being substituted for the l); (2) it has blue water (nīla jalāyā ti vattabbe Nerañjarāyā ti vuttam); (3) it is just simply the name of the river.UdA.26f.Nadī Kassapa’s hermitage was on the bank of the Nerañjarā (ThagA.i.45).

Nerañjarā is identified with the modern Nīlājanā,with its source in Hazaribagh,which,together with the Mohanā,unites to form the river Phalgu.CAGL 524.

2.NerañjarāA channel that branched northwards from the Punnavaddhana tank.Cv.lxxix.49.
