From En Wikipedia:

Devadatta (देवदत्‍त) was a Buddhist monk and the cousin of Gautama Buddha.

Devadatta is noted for attempting to kill the Buddha on several occasions including:

  • Rolling a boulder towards him. Devadatta missed, but a splinter from the rock drew blood from the Buddha's foot. According to Buddhist tradition, this is one of the five ànantarika-kammas, the five most heinous deeds a human can perform.
  • Inciting an elephant to charge at the Buddha. The Buddha was able to pacify the elephant by directing metta toward it.
