Bālaṃbhaṭṭa (बालंभट्ट).—(or बाळंभट्ट (bāḷaṃbhaṭṭa)) surnamed Payagunda or Payagunde, who has written a commentary on the commentary Mitaksara on the याज्ञवल्क्यस्मृति (yājñavalkyasmṛti). Some scholars say that he was also a great grammarian and identical with वैद्यनाथ पायगुंडे (vaidyanātha pāyaguṃḍe) who has written the commentary काशिका (kāśikā) or गदा (gadā) on the Paribhasendusekhara, the Cidasthimala on the Laghusabdendusekhara and commentaries on the Vaiyakaranabhusana,Sabdakaustubha and Bhasyapradipoddyota.
