Upāliparipṛcchā (उपालिपरिपृच्छा) is the name of a text, according to Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter 3).—[...] The Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra and the Che song liu (i.e., the Chinese translation of the Sarvāstivādin Vinaya) both having been translated by Kumārajīva, it is not surprising that the Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra, in analyzing the Vinayapiṭaka here, purely and simply reproduces the table of contents of the Che song liu.
