Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Vedehiputta:An epithet constantly used in connection with Ajātasattu.

Buddhaghosa explains it* by saying that Videhī here means a wise woman and not the Videha lady,because Ajātasattu’s mother was the daughter,not of a king of Videha,but of a Kosala king.(E.g.J.iii.121; iv.342; she was called Kosaladevī e.g.J.ii.403).

* Vedehiputto ti,vedehīti panditā dhivacanam etam; pandititthiyā putto ti attho (SA.i.120); cf.DA.i.139.

According to the Nirayāvalī Sūtra,(Jacobi,Jaina Sutras,SBE.xxii.Introd.p.xiii) there was,among the wives of Bimbisāra,Callanā,daughter of Cetaka,a rājā of Vaisāli,whose sister Trisālā was the mother of Mahāvīra.She was also called Srībhadrā.

According to the Tibetan Dulvā (Rockhill:Life of the Buddha,63f),Ajatasattu’s mother was Vāsavī,daughter of Simha of Vaisāli.It was foretold that Vāsavī’s son would kill his father.

Cf.Vedehikā,Vedehamuni.
