He once visited Nandaka Thera with Pekkhuniya’s grandson, Rohana. AN.i.193f. He built a vihāra for the nuns and Sundarīndā was appointed to supervise the work. As a result, Sāḷha and Sundarīnandā saw each other frequently and fell in love. Wishing to seduce her, Sāḷha invited a party of nuns to his house and set apart seats for those nuns who were older than Nandā in one part, and for those younger in another, so that Nandā would be alone. But she, guessing the reason for the invitation, did not go, and, instead, sent an attendant nun to Sāḷha’s house for her alms, excusing herself on the plea that she was taken ill. Salha, hearing of this, set a servant to look after the other nuns and ran off to the monastery. Nandā, on her bed, was waiting for him, and he seduced her. Vin.iv.211f.
