The Atthasalini (DhSA.267) mentions that once the Elder Tipitaka Mahadhammarakkhita, in talking of consciousness, referred to the Saketapanha.

It is said that in Saketa the monks raised the query, When by one volition kamma is put forth, is there one conception only, or different conceptions? Unable to decide, they consulted the Abhidhamma Elders, who declared that just as from one mango only one sprout puts forth, so by one volition there is only one conception, and for different volitions, different conceptions.
