1. Uggata.-See Ugga (4).

 

2. Uggata.-A khattiya of the city of Sumangala, father of Sujāta Buddha. J.i.38; Bu.xiii.20.

 

3. Uggata.-The Kālinga king who, with Bhīmaratha, king of Sa˝jayantī, and Atthaka, king of Hastināpura, sought the Bodhisatta Sarabhanga to learn from him where the kings Kalābu, Nālikira, Ajjuna and Dandakī had been born after the destruction of themselves and their kingdoms as a result of their ill-treatment of holy men. J.v.135ff.

Their story is given in the Sarabhanga Jātaka (q.v.).

The scholiast of the Jātaka (J.v.137) takes Uggata to be not the name of the Kālinga king but a descriptive epithet, and explains it by saying cando viya suriyo viya ca pākato pa˝˝āto.

The Mahāvastu (iii.364f), however, definitely mentions Ugga as the name of the king, in the same way as Bhīmaratha and Asthamaka (Atthaka), and gives the capitals of the two latter as Sa˝jayantī and Hastināpura respectively.

 

4. Uggata.-King during the time of Sobhita Buddha. He built a vihāra named Surinda at Sunandavatī and another named Dhammaganārāma at Mekhalā and dedicated them to the Buddha and the Order. At the festival of dedication of the former one hundred crores became arahants and at that of the latter, ninety crores (Bu.vii.9f; BuA.139).

 

5. Uggata.-Twenty-nine kappas ago there were sixteen kings of the name of Uggata, all previous incarnations of the Thera Citakapūjaka. Ap.i.151.

 

6. Uggata.-King of one thousand and fifty-one kappas ago; a previous life of Dhajadāyaka Thera. Ap.i.109.

 

7. Uggata.-Fourteen kappas ago there were four kings named Uggata, previous births of Parappasādaka (Ap.i.114) or Bhūta (ThagA.i.494) Thera.
