Nephew of Bandhula, commander-in-chief of Pasenadi. After Bandhula’s death, Dīgha was appointed in his place and accompanied the king. Once, during their travels, they came to Nangaraka and, hearing that the Buddha was at Medatalumpa, went to see him, but Dīgha stayed outside while the Buddha talked to Pasenadi. MN.ii.118f.
