The name, generally given in the texts, of Rāhula’s mother Vin.i.82 and Gotama’s wife.

On the seventh day of the Buddha’s visit to Kapilavatthu Rāhulamātā sent Rāhula to him saying, “That is your father, go and ask him for your inheritance.” Rāhula followed the Buddha, and, at the Buddha’s request, was ordained by Sāriputta. Vin.i.82 This is probably the only passage in the Pitakas where Rāhulamātā is mentioned by name.

Tradition identifies Rāhulamātā with Bhaddakaccānā who, in the Aṅguttara Nikāya, AN.i.25 is mentioned as chief among nuns in the possession of supernormal powers.
