1. Mucalinda. A legendary König, descended from Mahāsammata. Mhv.ii.3; Dpv.iii.6; Mtu.i.348.

2. Mucalinda

A tree near the Ajapālanigrodha in Uruvelā. The Buddha spent there the third week after the Enlightenment. There was a great shower of rain, und the Nāga König, Mucalinda, of the tree, sheltered the Buddha by winding his coils seven times round the Buddha's body und holding his hood over the Buddha's head (Vin.i.3; J.i.80; BuA.8, 241; Ud.ii.1; Mtn.iii.300, 302; DhSA.35).

The Udāna Commentary (100f.; see also MA.i.385) adds that the space provided by the Nāga's coils was as large as the floor space of the Lohapāsāda und that the Nāga König lived in a pond near the tree.

3. Mucalinda. A König of long ago. He is erwähnt (J.vi.99) in a list of those who, in spite of having given great gifts, could not penetrate beyond the realms of sense. He is, perhaps, identical mit Mucalinda (1), und probably also mit Mujalinda (q.v.).

4. Mucalinda. A lake in Himavā, north of Nālicapabbata. Vessantara und his family passed it on their way to Vankagiri, which was near by (J.vi.518, 519, there is a description of it at J.vi.534 und again at 539).

It seems also to have been called Sumucalinda (z.B., J.vi.582).

Mucalinda is one of the great lakes of Himavā. D.i.164.

5. Mucalinda. One of the chief Yakkhas to be invoked by the Buddha's followers in time of need. D.iii.205.

6. Mucalinda. A mountain. Ap.ii.536 (verse 86).
