The Ślokavārttika is a work on Mimamsa philosophy by Kumārila Bhaṭṭa.

Source: IKGA: Asia

In his Ślokavārttika, Kumārila ponders the questions of ontology, epistemology, philosophy of language, ethics, religion, and many others. The codanā chapter occupies an important place in his work as he debates the definition of dharma, the central term of the tradition. In this context, Kumārila develops innovative models of argumentation for the truth theory of enlightenment and language, for the critique of omniscience, especially of Buddha's omniscience, and for the justification of ritual killing.
