Samantapāsādikā (Pali; C. Shanjianlü piposha; J. Zenkenritsubibasha; K. Sŏn’gyŏnyul pibasa 善見律毘婆沙) is a fifth-century commentary on the Vinaya Pitaka, written in Sri Lanka by Buddhaghosa. The text includes a section on the early history of Buddhism, as well brief accounts of Ashoka and other key figures.[1]

According to Buswell and Lopez, the title translates as “Entirely Pleasing”.[2]
