He  is called Uddhamsotto – “He who goes upstream” ……

Uddhamsoto is a beautiful word that Buddha uses many times. Uddham means great endeavor; Soto means the source. The English word ‘source’ comes from the same root as soto. The Sanskrit word is Short; from shrot comes the English word ‘source’ and the Pali word ‘soto’. Buddha speaks Pali; he is using soto. Uddhamsoto means a man who is trying, with all his being, to reach to the source, to the very source of being. His whole effort is to know the ultimate, the very ground of existence, because that is where truth is, God is, nirvana is.
