Buddhist - A bodhisattva who appeared in the form of a white elephant. This being had two wives, one of whom became a human and married a king. She then instructed her hunters to find and kill her former mate, recognisable by his six tusks. He was caught by Sunottara who failed to cut out the tusks because they were so hard. Chadanta died when he cut out his own tusks and his former wife died when she heard of his death. Occasionally referred to as Chadanta.
