Manorhita ［摩奴羅］ (n.d.) (; Manura): Also known as Madhura. A monk of the Nadī kingdom in India around the fourth and fifth centuries. The twenty-first of Shakyamuni Buddha’s twenty-three, or the twenty-second of his twenty-four, successors. According to A History of the Buddha’s Successors, though he was born as a crown prince of the kingdom, he renounced secular life and studied Buddhism under Vasubandhu, his teacher and predecessor. Well versed in the three divisions of the Buddhist canon, he practiced Buddhism chiefly in southern India, refuting the doctrines of Hinayana schools and spreading Mahayana Buddhism. He transferred the Buddha’s teachings to Haklenayashas.
