Vidudabha Son of Pasenadi and Vasabhakhattiya. On the birth of Vidudabha, the king, glad at having a son, sent word to his own grandmother asking her to choose a name. The minister who delivered the message was deaf, and when the grandmother spoke of Vasabhakhattiya as being dear to the king, mistook vallabha for Vidudabha, and, thinking that this was an old family name, bestowed it on the prince. When the boy was quite young, Pasenadi conferred on him the rank of senapati, thinking that this would please the Buddha. It was for the same reason he married Vasabhakhattiya; both in the Piyajatika Sutta (M.ii.110) and the Kannakatthala Suttas Vidudabha is spoken of as senapati.
