Buddhist Dictionary of Pali Proper Names by G P Malalasekera
Mahāmālunkyā Sutta:On the five bonds that chain uninstructed men to the lower life:delusion as to personality,doubt,attachment to rites,lusts of the flesh,and malevolence.The path to the destruction of these bonds is the cultivation of the jhānas (M.i.432-7).

The Sutta is so called because it was preached in contradiction of a wrong answer given by Mālunkyāputta to a question of the Buddha.The Buddha pointed out his error,and Ananda requested the Buddha to give the correct answer.

This is one of the suttas which teach samatha-vipassanā.MA.ii.572.
