Jinendrabuddhi (जिनेन्द्रबुद्धि).—A reputed Buddhist Grammarian of the eighth century who wrote a scholarly commentary on the Kasikavrtti ofJayaditya and Vamana. The commentary is called न्यास (nyāsa) or काशिकाविवरणपञ्जिका (kāśikāvivaraṇapañjikā) and the writer is referred to as न्यासकार (nyāsakāra) in many later grammar works Some scholars identify him with पूज्यपाददेवनन्दिन् (pūjyapādadevanandin) the writer of the जैनेन्द्र-व्याकरण (jainendra-vyākaraṇa), but this is not possible as पूज्यपाददेवनन्दिन् (pūjyapādadevanandin) was a Jain Grammarian who flourished much earlier.
