Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Kankhāvitaranī:A commentary,also called Mātikatthakathā,by Buddhaghosa on the Pātimokkha of the Vinaya Pitaka.The colophon also contains a summary,a kind of uddāna,of the contents.It is stated that the work was written at the request of a thera named Sona,and Buddhaghosa declares most emphatically that there is not even a single word in the book which is not in conformity with the Canon or the Commentaries of the Mahāvihāra (p.204,ed.Hewavitarane Bequest Series; Gv.59,69.).The Gandhavamsa (61f,71; also Svd.1212) mentions a tīkā on the Kankhāvitaranī named Vinayatthamañjūsā,written by Buddhanāga at the request of Sumedha.
