PasenadiSeniya

King of Kosala and contemporary of the Buddha. Quite early in the Buddha’s ministry, Pasenadi became his follower and close friend, and his devotion to the Buddha lasted till his death. Pasendi’s chief wife was Mallikā. There are many discourses that feature King Pasenadi coming to the Buddha to ask about Dhamma. Pasenadi died shortly before the Buddha.
