Mammaṭa (मम्मट).—An Indian scholar who lived about 1100 A.D. He was a great scholar and critic in Sanskrit and was born in Kashmir. His masterpiece was a great book "Kāvya Prakāśa". It is divided into ten chapters. Each chapter is entitled "Ullāsa". There is a view expressed by some people that Mammaṭa wrote only the first nine chapters of this book and the last chapter was written by another scholar named Alaka.
Numerous commentaries on Mammaṭa’s Kāvya Prakāśa have been published. It is said that Patañjali’s commentator Kayyaṭa was the brother of Mammaṭa. "Śabda Vyāpāra Vicāra" is another book written by Mammaṭa.
The Purana (पुराण, purāṇas) refers to Sanskrit literature preserving ancient India’s vast cultural history, including historical legends, religious ceremonies, various arts and sciences. The eighteen mahapuranas total over 400,000 shlokas (metrical couplets) and date to at least several centuries BCE.
