Sūtra Paraphrases in the Cāndravyākaraṇavṛtti, the Kāśikāvṛtti, and the Mahāvṛtti Ben-Dor, Sharon


This paper examines the paraphrases of the Cāndravyākaraṇavṛtti, the Kāśikāvṛtti and the Mahāvṛtti on the sūtras occurring in the section on the addition of the parasmaipada and ātmanepada endings. It shows that the authors share a certain pattern which might be the pattern of an earlier source which the authors of these texts where using. The paper discusses the inconsistencies found in the paraphrases and shows that they can be explained. In addition, an earlier version of the Kāśikāvṛtti may have had consistency on this matter and the variations found in the current Kāśikāvṛtti are a result of two opposite approaches and the version of the paraphrases which appears in the current Kāśikāvṛtti is a mixture of the paraphrases of these two approaches.
