Purna Maitrayani-putra (Chinese: 滿慈子; pinyin: Mǎn Cízǐ), also called Puṇṇa, was an arahant and one of the ten leading disciples of the Buddha.

When asked by the Buddha what he would think if people were to assault or kill him, each time Puṇṇa explained how he would find himself fortunate.

As a result, the Buddha commended Puṇṇa on his self-control and peacefulness.

Puṇṇa went on to establish a thousand lay followers in the Buddha's teaching.

Upon Puṇṇa's death, the Buddha discerned that Puṇṇa had attained final Nibbana.
