A waggon builder of Sāvatthi. In the Angana Sutta (q.v.), Moggallāna tells Sāriputta how he once saw Samīti shaping a felloe; by his side, Panduputta was watching, wishing that Samiti might shape the felloe without crook, twist, or blemish. When Samīti did this, Panduputta sang with joy, saying that Samīti had read his thoughts. M.i.31f.
