Cullapantha (चुल्लपन्थ) or or Cūḍapanthaka.—q.v.; so read in Sukh 2.11 for Culla-patka, a monstrous form for which, amazingly, there is no ms. authority, whereas one ms. (reading -patthena) obviously intends -panthena (instr.) as the note points out (two mss. omit the word; the fourth -pacchena, surely for -patthena = panthena).Source: Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionaries: Edgerton Buddhist Hybrid Sanskrit Dictionary
