Bhāgavṛtti (भागवृत्ति).—One of the oldest commentaries on the Sutras of Panini, which, although not available at present, has been profusely quoted by Purusottamadeva and other Eastern Grammarians of the twelfth and later centuries. The authorship of the work is attributed to Bhartrhari, but the point is doubtful as Siradeva in his Paribhasavrtti on Pari. 76 has stated that the author of the Bhagavrtti has quoted from Maghakavya; cf. अत एवं तत्रैव सूत्रे भागवृत्तिः पुरातनमुनेर्मुनिता-मिति पुरातनीनेदिरिति च प्रमादपाठावेतौ गतानु-गतिकतया कवयः प्रयुञ्जते न तेषां लक्षणे चक्षुरिति । (ata evaṃ tatraiva sūtre bhāgavṛttiḥ purātanamunermunitā-miti purātanīnediriti ca pramādapāṭhāvetau gatānu-gatikatayā kavayaḥ prayuñjate na teṣāṃ lakṣaṇe cakṣuriti |) Some scholars attribute its authorship to Vimalamati. Whosoever be the author, the gloss (भागवृत्ति (bhāgavṛtti)) was a work of recognised merit; cf. काशिकाभागवृत्त्योश्चेत् सिद्धान्तं वेत्तुमस्ति धीः । तदा विचिन्त्यतां भातभीषावृत्तिरियं मम (kāśikābhāgavṛttyoścet siddhāntaṃ vettumasti dhīḥ | tadā vicintyatāṃ bhātabhīṣāvṛttiriyaṃ mama) Bhasavrtti at the end. सृष्टिघर (sṛṣṭighara) in his commentary on the Bhasavrtti also says " सा हि द्वयोर्विवरणकर्त्री (sā hi dvayorvivaraṇakartrī)."
