Janavasabha; A Yakkha, a later birth of King Bimbisāra. He appears before the Buddha at the Giñjakāvasatha in Ñātikā and declares his identity. He is on his way as a messenger from Vessavana to Virūlhaka and reports to the Buddha an account of an assembly of the devas in Tāvatimsa which had taken place some time earlier, and which account he claims to have heard from Vessavana. See Janavasabha Sutta.
