A king of Māgadha, great grandson of Ajātasattu and son of Anuruddha. It is probably this same king who is referred to in the Aṅguttara Nikāya. AN.iii.57ff. His wife Bhaddā died, and Muṇḍa gave himself up to complete despair and mummified the queen’s body. The king’s Treasurer, Piyaka, consulted the Elder Nārada who lived at Kukkuṭārāma in Pāṭaliputta and persuaded him to visit the king. Nārada preached to him, and his sorrow vanished.
