Kukkutapāda, Mount ［鶏足山］ (; Keisoku-sen): Also known as Mount Kukkutapada or Mount Gurupādaka. A mountain in the state of Magadha in ancient India, where Mahākāshyapa, one of Shakyamuni’s ten major disciples, died. The name of Mount Kukkutapāda was rendered into Chinese as Chicken Leg Mountain, and Mount Gurupādaka as Honored Foot Mountain. The Chinese priest Fa-hsien, who traveled to India to study the Buddhist scriptures in the beginning of the fifth century, described the mountain as a dangerous place inhabited by tigers, wolves, and other savage animals. Tradition has it that Mahākāshyapa is still living on Mount Kukkutapāda and waiting for the appearance of the future Buddha, Maitreya; when Maitreya appears, Mahākāshyapa will present him with Shakyamuni Buddha’s robe.
