Samantapāsādikā refers to a collection of Pali commentaries on Theravada Tipitaka Vinaya. It was a translation of Sinhala commentaries into Pali by Buddhaghosa in the 5th century. Many of the verses used in Samantapāsādikā are from older Dípavamsa.[1] Samantapasadika is made of two words : Samanta+Pasadika. Here 'samanta' indicates four directions and 'pasadika' means cool-down.
