1) Kātantraparibhāṣāvṛtti (कातन्त्रपरिभाषावृत्ति).—Name of a gloss on the Paribhāṣāpaṭha written by Bhāvamiśra, probably a Maithila Pandit whose date is not known.

2) Kātantraparibhāṣāvṛtti.—Name of a gloss on the Paribhāṣāpaṭha of the Kātantra school explaining 65 Paribhāṣās. No name of the author is found in the Poona manuscript.
