     Vipassi Buddha

In the Pali tradition Vipassi Buddha is well-known and is considered as the nineteenth Buddha out of the twenty-four Buddhas. He was son born of the father Bandhuma and mother Bandhumati in the Khema Park at a place called Bandhumati. He belonged to the Kondanna family. He was married to Sutana and he also had a son named as Samavattakkhandha.

He refused to live the worldly life on chariot; and practiced asceticism for eight months. Then he sat on the foot of the Patali tree; and just before his Enlightenment he accepted the milk-rice from Daughter of Sudassana Setthi; and sat on the seat prepared for him by Sujat. He carried out his first oration at Khemamigadaya to his step-brother Khandha and his priestís son - Tissa. His chief employee was Asoka. Chanda and Chandamitta were his chief women followers. Punabbasummitta and Naga were his principal male clients; and Sirima and Uttara were the chief women clients. He died at the age of eighty thousand years.

During the Age of Vipassi Buddha the present Bodhisatta lived as a Naga king with the name Atula; and had the opportunity of having offered a golden seat imprinted with jewels to Vipassi Buddha.
