2 chiefs of Buddha disciples ‘Sariputra’ and Maudgalana’

Sariputra and Maudgalana were the two chief disciples of the Buddha, often stylized as the right hand and left hand disciples of the Buddha respectively.

The two disciples were childhood friends who ordained under the Buddha together and are said to have become enlightened as arahants. The Buddha declared them his two chief disciples, after which they assumed leadership roles in the Buddha’s ministry in Buddhism.

A brief story of the 2 monks…

From Buddhist texts relate that Sariputra and Maudgalana were childhood friends who became spiritual wanderers in their youth. After having searched for spiritual truth with other contemporary teachers, they came into contact with the teachings of the Buddha and ordained as monks under him, after which the Buddha declared the friends his two chief disciples.

Sariputra and Maudgalana were said to have attained enlightenment as arhat two weeks after ordination. As chief disciple, two of them assumed a leadership role in the Sangha, doing tasks like looking after monks, assigning them objects of meditation, and clarifying points of doctrine.
