Suprabuddha ［善覚］ (; Zenkaku): The father of Māyā, Shakyamuni’s mother. According to the Sutra of the Collected Stories of the Buddha’s Deeds in Past Lives, Suprabuddha was a member of the Shākya tribe, a wealthy man who lived in Devadaha near Kapilavastu, India. He had eight daughters, the eldest of whom was Māyā, and the youngest, Mahāprajāpatī. Both Māyā and Mahāprajāpatī married Shuddhodana, king of Kapilavastu. The other six married his three brothers, two sisters to each of the three. Among them, Māyā gave birth to Shakyamuni. The Mahāsammata Sutra describes Suprabuddha as the ruler of the affluent city of Devadaha and as having two daughters, the elder named Māyā and the younger, Mahāmāyā. According to this account, Mahāmāyā became Shuddhodana’s consort and gave birth to Shakyamuni. In the Pali work Mahāvamsa (“The Great Chronicle”), Suprabuddha is referred to as the brother of Māyā, Shakyamuni’s mother, and Mahāprajāpatī.
