2. Amara.-A city in the time of Siddhattha Buddha. The Buddha, being there, made his way to the pleasaunce (Amaruyyāna) of the city, leaving his footprints to show his path. The two chiefs of the city, Sambahula and Sumitta, brothers, seeing the footmarks, went themselves to the pleasaunce, and having listened to the Buddha's preaching became arahants (BuA.186).
