Ujjhānasaññikā:The name given to a group of devas who once visited the Buddha at Jetavana late at night.They charged the Buddha with inconsistency,but later,begging his forgiveness,they were pardoned by him (S.i.23-5).Buddhaghosa (SA.i.50f ) says that they did not belong to any separate deva-world but were given this name by the Theras of the Council on account of their captious remarks.They had heard the Buddha praise his monks for self-denying practices while he himself wore raiment of silk,fine cloth or linen,ate food worthy of a rājā,dwelt in a Fragrant Cell like unto a deva-mansion and used good medicines.
